According to the words and writings of Griselidis Réal - Conception Coraly Zahonero of the Comédie-Française.
She made her life as a prostitute a work of art. Born in the 1920s, the exquisite and famous Swiss courtesan Grisélidis Réal was known for her talents as a writer and painter, to the point of being buried in the cemetery of the Kings of Geneva. She loved her clients, knew how to understand their loneliness. It is as a carnal consoler that she calms the misery of men. Muse of the world taboo of prostitution, she defends it with humor and violence as "an art, a science, a humanism". She made herself the cause of prostitutes, these heroines of the shadow. The play gives us the confidences of this subversive lover, this eternal revolt.
Great actress of the Comedie-Française, the sparkling Coraly Zahonero slips remarkably into the skin of this free and passionate woman. Griselidis Réal appears dignified, corrosive, incandescent. On the saxophone and the violin, two musicians accompany this plea of universal love.
