“Caught in a photograph by an explosion of magnesium” Jean Cocteau

During the filming of Le Testament d’Orphée, Jean Cocteau employed the young photographer Lucien Clergue to document the preparations for the film and the process of making it.

For Orphée, theatre photographer and Lightmap collaborator Cordula Treml is both documenting the rehearsal process and the live stage performance, on stage as “Lucien Clergue”.
