Violence(s) - Theatre performance by Fadhel Jaïbi and Jalila Bakkar



A terrible observation: the Tunisian revolution, instead of bringing hope, gave rise to unprecedented fears, anxieties, depression, acts of despair, daily violence leading to atrocious crimes... 

Beyond the cultural, social, economic, political and psychiatric explanations, isn't there a great mystery, an unfathomable black hole related to "acting out"? 

Where does acting out  come from? From which dark depths of the ancient myths and archaic behaviours does it reach us? Within what mysteries does it lurk?

How to show it, how to tell it - off the beaten track and the minefields of ready-made judgments and preconceptions? 

It's a journey into the human soul. After Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Shakespeare, Dante, Buchner, Brecht, Genet, Bond, Pasolini and many others ... what's "new", unreal, surreal, tragicomic in our terrible daily life?
