ThuSep  192019 /  8:00 pm

On December 2, 1970, Michel Foucault gave his inaugural lecture at the Collège de France, the first lesson for which a rewriting subsists, entitled L’Ordre du discours.

The effect of this re-enactment of Foucault’s words is to set his thoughts in motion once again.

Seuls en Scène 2019 presents Avignon à vie

SunSep  222019 /  5:00 pm

Seuls en Scène 2019 presents Avignon for Ever. The title rings out like a declaration of love and it is one — one that author and director Pascal Rambert made in Avignon and at its Festival. “I wrote this text on trains, at airports, in stations, on planes. When you can finally be quiet. And daydream a little. Dreaming a little about what you love. Here, Avignon and its Festival. I don't know why I wanted to write a kind of love letter to Avignon and its Festival. Probably because the conditions of beauty and sorrow of the human condition, which are represented, are held for three weeks in this place.” It is Stanislas Nordey who will lend his voice to this luminous ode to the theatre.
