A woman sits in a Brussels café, telling delicate tales of love. She insists on the minute and most intimate details: the beating heart, the sweaty palms, the skin that shivers to the touch. Little by little, through her portraits, she reveals what it is that drives her to tell stories and lets us in on the strange secret, shared with her one day by a young man in a coffee shop.
Carole Fréchette's Elisa's Skin was performed in Vancouver and taken on tour including at the National Arts Centre as part of The Magnetic North Theatre Festival in 2005.
