Time: 1879 - 1943. Settings: The Afterlife. The Asylum at Montdevergues, Villeneuve-sur Fere, France, the countryside of Camille's youth; the Paris studios of Auguste Rodin and Camille Claudel. This is the story of Camille Claudel: the Maiden, the Woman, the Crone.


Best known to the world as the muse and lover of sculptor Auguste Rodin, she was a gifted artist in her own right who created sculptures of deep sensual spirituality. The relationships in her family proved crucial to Camille’s psychological development as she moved between the opposing forces of love and betrayal.


Even as she struggled with madness, she found a home for her soul in her beloved creations. From here we move to prose and poetic evocations of many essential themes of the feminine: motherhood, daughterhood, love, loss, experiences unique to the feminine body, experiences that transcend ordinary consciousness into the world of symbols and dreams.
