Vive La Phrance!

The history of “right” and “left” as stage directions in the theater and identity markers in politics can be traced to France in the 1780s.

As aesthetics and artistic ideologies have changed, so too has the configuration of performance space. The same could be said of the political spectrum in Europe today. Have “right” and “left” become obsolete in politics?

Using theater as a testing ground for alternative political categories, Vive la Phrance! draws on examples of authorship, performance, spectatorship and participation from stage art and pop culture.

Black Box teater will follow this work throughout 2017, starting with a residency and process viewing in the spring. This will be an early testing of material with feedback from the audience. Performances will follow in September 2017.

This process viewing is free. You don´t need to sign up or buy a ticket in advance. Welcome!
