Who is Madame Bovary today? Does she even exist?
She's a wife, a mother, a woman, a person of high creative potential, a person fulfilling the needs of other people and of society, often believing that they are her own needs.
Emma Bovary is a heroine of a tragedy. A young person who wants to save her life and yet simultaneously wishes to escape it, a mother torn between her maternal regrets and her love for her daughter, who constitutes an obstacle on her path to – perhaps – happiness.
Emma slowly acknowledges her own situation and her own tragedy. This intimate production, directed by Małgorzata Jakubowska, revisits Flaubert's story of the quest for identity within female roles, re-examines Emma's disappointment with her choices and poses questions about the status of choices made by women in the context of social expectations and structures.
