“A whisper, a shiver, the strange silence of nature…” ORLANDO, a young, somewhat effeminate poet, writes poetry on top of his hill, and it is the only thing that matters to him. One day his mother decides to send him to the king’s court to become “a worthy and manly man”… If she only knew! With writing and poetry as his goal and guide, Orlando will go on a journey of initiation and be confronted with all sorts of adventures and surprising experiences. By adapting Virginia Woolf’s novel ORLANDO, Delphine Panique presents a light and funny album, which mixes references to literature, popular culture and travel stories while questioning gender and sexuality. Long out of print, Delphine Panique’s very first album from Misma is back in a new edition with color pages in which the author talks about her relationship with Virginia Woolf’s work and her very particular way of adapting this novel.
