DetailsLe Livre Blanc
is an innovative new piece for puppetry, music and voice based on Cocteau's once-banned novella of the same title. Le Livre Blanc, a âwhite paperâ on homosexual love, was first published anonymously in France by Cocteauâs contemporary Maurice Sachs and was at once decried as by the critics as obscene. The semi-autobiographical narrative describes a youthâs love affairs with a succession of boys and men during the early years of this century. The young manâs self-deceptive attempts to find fulfilment, first through women and then by way of the church, are movingly conveyed; the book ends with a strong plea for male homosexuality to be accepted without censure. One woman telephone opera in double bill with a puppet show based on Cocteau's once-banned novetta.Company Metta Theatre.
