Figures of Desire: Wordplay, Spirit Possession, Fantasy, Madness, and Mourning in Japanese Noh Plays (review)

Le Divan du Monde ('The Divan of the World') is a converted theatre, now functioning as a concert space, located at 75 rue des Martyrs, in the 18th arrondissement , in the Pigalle neighborhood of Paris.

At the beginning of the 19th century, there was a ballroom called the Saint-Flour Musette. In 1861 it was turned into the Brasserie des Martyrs, which was patronized by Charles Baudelaire , Edgar Degas , and Jules Vallès . [1] This was replaced in 1873 by a café-concert christened the "Divan Japonais" ('Japanese Divan') by its owner Théophile Lefort, who decorated it in Japanese-style . His successor, Jules Sarrazin, had a second room built in the basement called "Temple de la Bonne Humeur" ('Temple of Good Mood').

The cabaret singer Yvette Guilbert became famous there when she appeared in 1891 and Dranem was also a featured artist. The pantomime Le Coucher de la Mariée ( The Bride Going to Bed ) was performed there in 1894. This included for the first time a "naked" woman (i.e. wearing a somewhat transparent blouse), which scandalized the audience. [2] Toulouse-Lautrec and Adolphe Léon Willette , then Pablo Picasso , were frequent visitors.
