"Darling, start the phonograph and put this wonderful music on, would you? The guests should be here anytime now. Oh what a thrill this will be. Only Théophile is missing, the old man ought to be up to something as usual..."

To recreate the vaporous feelings of a party à la Grand Meaulnes, Great Gatsby or Mrs. Dalloway while living the early madness of the 1911 Avant-Garde, such was the experience proposed in "Opium". Guests create their own journey as a legendary party unfolds around them. Only they can decide to stay among other guests in the grand salon to celebrate and be seduced. But will they try to extract themselves, hurry up to another house floor and experience a mind-bending moment behind closed doors? Who plays a role in this house? Who doesn't? And afterall, aren't we all actors in the spectacle of life?

Your invitation has been lost? Or was it the cognac, was it too strong for you, dear? Fortunately, there is a book you can read to recall those haunting memories...
