Melancholia Europea (une enquête démocratique)
2017.12.05 > 2017.12.10
with the Théâtre de la Ville
In a theatre transformed into an editorial room, six actor-researchers are in turns investigators, historians or Nazi leaders from the Second World War. They scrutinise the “banality of evil” of Hitler, Speer or Himmler, to understand the ordinary “monsters” of today. After Z comme Zigzag, Le Petit Z (cf. Deleuze), Bérangère Jannelle has created Melancholia Europea (une enquête démocratique) as a manufacture of history in present times. A tribute to the power of active thought!
