At Les Subsistances, directors, choreographers, performers, and circus artists will discuss their world and give substance to the major issues of the day. Philosophers, researchers and writers working in the humanities and social sciences will put that artistic activity into perspective. The brain and the body will face off, with us in the middle!
As global greenhouse gas emissions are expected to double by 2050 and record melting of the polar ice caps has been announced for summer 2012, we all feel somewhat powerless. A discussion and show designed to help us feel, as well as think about, this sky that seems, thanks to our fickleness, to want to fall our heads.
Never have we talked so much about money; never have we had so much information yet felt so disarmed in the face of money’s mysterious disappearance, flight, and concentration. Debt, crisis, deregulation, speculation: once simply economic tools, money and finance seem to have become the brains behind a secret organization that exercises complete control over our daily lives . . . and may tear up the social contract.
To be a man or a woman, not quite one, not completely the other. . . . The definition of genders is undergoing profound changes. Though it seemed destined to remain a controversy among avant-garde intellectuals, it has become part of our daily lives and raises fundamental issues of sexuality and family, and is shaking some of the political foundations of our society. A discussion with intellectuals and artists.
