Famous for her 1936 performance in a costume inspired by a Salvador Dalí painting, Sheila Legge was an important but little-known figure of surrealism. The Giacometti Institute continues its tribute to this mysterious artist with a new musical performance.

This performance will summon the ghost of Sheila Legge in the form of a collective ritual based on "I have done my best for you", a poem written after this mythical apparition.

During this performance, each spectator will have to wear a mask with the effigy of Sheila Legge which will be provided, and will thus be an integral part of the process of creation in situ.
