Born in the 19th century Dijon, France, Emilie Sageé was a passionate and respected school teacher whose poetic struggle with herself completely changed her life. In sixteen years, Emilie worked at nineteen schools, leaving behind pupils and colleagues who had started to doubt about reality. Several said they had seen Emilie in different places at the same time. Others claimed she had a ghostly twin. Recent reports of mysterious phenomena come from Valmiera girls’ boarding school in Latvia.
The speechless story of “Emilie Sagée” offers an insight into herself and makes the viewer questions their own reality and perception of our world.
Mysterious emotions have been composed together by directors Kersti Heinloo and Raho Aadla, adding a visual auditory nerve to the performance and bringing a physical and perceptual approach to the creative process.
