Date(s) and venue(s)
The Collectif Marthe’s theatre is centred on philosophical questions, theoretical texts, university writings, people’s stories... Elsa Dorlin’s essay Self-defence, a philosophy of violence punctuated their second creation: Tiens ta garde. Tiens ta garde is the story of four young women who meet up for a weekend of self-defence training: they will learn that they can fight, and, as a group, find the power to act.
This workshop will be a chance to consider the questions that the performance asks (which bodies have the right to defend themselves? And which don’t have that right?), but also a pretext to explore on stage violence in all its forms, and to experience through the stage what secretly makes us stronger.
