Nous ne pouvons connaître le goût de l’ananas par le récit des voyageurs TRANCHE N°5

From 26 to 29 November 2015

Performance / Théâtre


For several years now, Odile Darbelley and Michel Jacquelin, creators of performances, art, and ideas, have been continuing their monograph on tangential art: a parallel universe between Marcel Duchamp and Pierre Dac where fact feeds fiction and vice versa. Nous ne pouvons connaître le goût de l’ananas par le récit des voyageurs is a series of theater pieces about autobiography and autofiction. In a big transparent bubble, cocoon, incubator, or place for physical and mental projection, a thinker or an artist is invited to invent a form of performance to talk about his or her life and work. It is based on the theory that “if you want something done right, [you should] do it yourself.” Here, for TRANCHE N°5, the philosopher Vinciane Despret tells her story. As an ethologist, that is, an animal behavior specialist, she naturally became interested in humans. Under the very funny magnifying glass of Darbelley and Jacquelin, she talks about her life and her experience. As her helpers, they joyfully try their hand at transmitting tangential thought.
