The birth of violence
Europalia Festival / 22.11.2019



le Phénix, scène nationale Valenciennes et pôle européen de création, Europalia 2019, Theâtre les Tanneurs [2019]

Three non-professional actors off stage. They debate the possibility of one of them using a gun by the end of the show. While opposing opinions, movements and emotions are projected on a screen, the audience helps the protagonist to complete an equally dilemmic artwork entitled The Birth of Violence. By juxtaposing these two layers, The Birth of Violence offers an unbiased philosophical perspective on extremism, on the emotional motives of radicalization and on how we show/view the phenomenon in contemporary media.
 Visual installation by Ioana Sisea.
