Approaching the ecological crisis through theatre? The director and science historian proposes to approach the anthropological and political questions raised by the current upheaval through the tools of the performing arts.
Based on the reflection on ecological chaos that she has been conducting for several years with artists and researchers from various disciplines (philosophers, architects, dancers, scientists), Frédérique Aït-Touati wishes to share avenues of work and research, with the conviction that theatre has a central role to play in the renewal of our ecological and earthly imaginations.
Some of the most lively anthropological and political questions raised by the ecological crisis are questions of dramaturgy and scenography: who speaks? who distributes the roles? who has the power to act and how? who decides on the occupation of territories, how to move around? And again: what is the scene of anthropos and what does it mean to share it, to live among the living? As a medium capable of grasping questions that go beyond those of the human comedy, the theatre seems particularly suited to exploring these subjects and capturing the cosmological upheaval that is taking place.
This is the second intervention in the "State of the World" lecture series, which aims to offer students and apprentices of The Manufacture another opening on the issues of the contemporary world.
Given the current coronavirus regulations, this conference will be held at a distance, allowing a wider community to share these issues with us.
