Reading: Qui a tué mon père
Zoukak Sidewalks 2018 - The Festival presents:
Qui a tué mon père
By Stanislas Nordey
Sunday 4 November 2018 at 4:00 p.m. at Biel Dome, Beirut
Tickets available through ihjoz.com and at the door
Stanislas Nordey will be conducting a reading of Edouard Louis’ text “Qui a tué mon père” in which Louis decrypts the mechanisms of domination that crush human-beings and their relationships, by portraying and interpreting a son’s view of his father, from the earliest childhood memories until his father’s "social death". Who are the “outcasts” that politicians talk about? With this text, Edouard Louis engages in what he calls a "literature of confrontation".
The reading is the result of the masterclass given by Nordey on the same day and will be performed by the participants.
The reading will be followed by a round-table discussion with Roger Assaf and Stanislas Nordey, who will be sharing with us their experience and reflecting about the main issues confronting theatre nowadays.
