1 episode
A machine for time travel, virtual reality transports you to the Folies Bergère at the end of the 19th century. Suzon, the barmaid with the enigmatic gaze at the centre of the painting, conceals mysteries that will be revealed through a dizzying waltz between the viewpoints of the different characters.

What can the pensive young woman be thinking about in this place dedicated to merriment and excess? What are the intentions of the intimidating, top-hatted man who addresses her and whose image is reflected in the mirror behind her? This experience invites you to participate in an investigation and come up with your own interpretation of the painting, one of the artist’s last great works. Immerse yourself in the troubling emotions conveyed by Suzon’s gaze – her eyes will lose nothing of their muted melancholy, but Suzon herself will seem even more familiar to you.
