“The Whales Eyelash” was first published as a five act play in 2014 . It is certainly the only play ever written using solely text and image garnered from 19th century microscope slides.
The title is even taken from a microscope slide although in reality whales do not have eyelashes. The plot seems to chart the course of human history with all its foibles until its demise at some unspecified date.
For the very first production of the play, the scenes as seen through the microscope have been transformed into soft photographic cubes that can be moved around by the viewers. The audience becomes the director. Strange conjunctions in the revealed microcosms will hopefully delight and stimulate the passing audience.

Since 1971, a part of the Paris Descartes University is located in the old Medicine Faculty.
They open their oldest collections to the public, collected by the Doyen Lafaye during the XVIIIth century. Old chirurgical tools and other rare pieces are to be discovered in the museum.
