The late philosopher Bruno Latour worked with director Frédérique Aït-Touati to make the stage a place for “scenic essays” and philosophical experimentation in The Terrestrial Trilogy, a reflection on the need for a profound renewal of our representations of the terrestrial world, living and non-living.
The Terrestrial Trilogy started in 2016 with the INSIDE performance conference, followed in 2019 by Moving Earths and in 2020 by Viral. The three lecture performances are the result of a singular process of creation and long-term research developed at the Théâtre Nanterre Amandiers.
