Lewis Center for the Arts; Department of French and Italian; L’Avant-Scène

Using archival material and documentary inquiry as her starting point, Émilie Rousset’s performative research projects explore theatrical potential in the gap between original documentation and its representation. She has collaborated with filmmaker Louise Hémon on the “Rituels” series, an evolving collection of films and performances which probe the rites of society by drawing upon the respective codes of theater and documentary cinema.

Le Grand Débat recreates a televised debate using a collage of archives from presidential debates taking place between 1974 and 2017 through three short films and a recorded performance with humor an essential component.

The recorded event is presented in French with English subtitles.

The virtual event is free and open to the public.

The video recording will be posted on this page on September 15 at 5 PM (EDT) and will be available through Saturday, September 19.
