Variations Orientalistes

Mary Chebbah, Renaud Golo, Sandra Iché, Pascale Schaer, Vincent Weber (fr)

17 and 18 April 2014


For this new work, ORIENTALISTS VARIATIONS, and following on the research on Lebanon initiated by the former piece Wagons libres, Sandra Iché invited four of her artistic companions who had themselves never visited Lebanon to come on stage and say “I have been to Lebanon and this is what I have seen”. In a revue-type series of scenes, not only the oriental tradition of travel stories but also visions, feelings, thoughts and present-day clichés of the performers come to life: a working process that critically explores the practices of “Orientalism” and exoticism and puts our fictions and conceptions of ‘the Other’ to the test for their constructive potential.
