S. Thala is a dance performance inspired by Marguerite Duras’ poignant novel – l’Amour – a touching
love story of a pubescent French girl and an older, wealthy Chinese-Vietnamese man. It is based on
Duras’ personal experience in French-Indonesia.
S. Thala is performed by Annette Leday who has studied Kathakhali and western dance. Annette, who
knows India intimately, captures the tenderness of Duras’ and Leo’s romance using movements that
radiate the triumphs, joys, and sadness reminiscent of their love. Audience members who’ve never read
l’Amour will come away from the performance feeling that they know Duras intimately.
