Performance: The Last Judgment of all Kings

Event Details

Free but booking essential

Written by the radical egalitarian Sylvain Maréchal, this play (first performed in 1793 or Year II) is the first example of participatory theatre in a revolutionary context and a precursor of the avant-garde theatre of Jarry and Mayakovsky.

The aim of the production is not to stage a historical curiosity or heritage project but to reactivate elements of utopian thought germane to a contemporary situation. To this end, we intend to incorporate student discussion and translation decisions into the scenario itself. The play will conclude with a discussion involving representatives from contemporary egalitarian movements, including Syriza.

Performed by final year students of the French Department under the direction of Simon Hatab. In French and English with subtitles.
