Based on The Order of Discourse by Michel Foucault
On December 2, 1970, Michel Foucault gave his inaugural lecture at the Collège de France, the first lesson for which a rewriting subsists, entitled L’Ordre du discours. Fanny de Chaillé recreates the event and puts together a discursive performance destined for university amphitheaters. The effect of this re-enacting of Foucault’s words is to set his thoughts in motion once again.
