“ORLANDO, a young, slightly effeminate poet, writes poetry on top of his hill, and that is the only thing that matters to him. One day his mother decides to send him to the king’s court to become “a manly and dignified man”… If she only knew!
With writing and poetry as his goal and guide, Orlando will go on a journey of initiation and be confronted with all sorts of adventures and surprising experiences.
Delphine Panique’s adaptation of Virginia Woolf’s novel ORLANDO is a light and funny book that combines references to literature, popular culture and travel stories, while questioning gender and sexuality in the process.
Long out of print, Delphine Panique’s very first album for Misma is back in a new edition with colour pages in which the author talks about her relationship with Virginia Woolf’s work and her very special way of adapting this novel.”
