An actor alone in a western scene.
He rehearses, sings, trains.
He rehearses the role of the hero.
But the role isn’t written for him.
Gli altri لخرین is an acid dialogue, a light and ironic work on the perception of the Other that moves in a hybrid territory: banal, vulgar and direct images and songs alternate with stories rooted in the depths of our Western mentality and identity. In subtle balance between fiction and reality, it exposes the device of power that underlies the orientalist representation of the Other starting from the quintessential form of representation, scenic fiction. A voice-over comments, gives instructions, remembers limits and modalities. The audience is an integral part of the game. Crossing several genres, from cinema to docu-fiction, passing through classical theatre and advertising, CORPS CITOYEN reveals the hidden colonial paternalism while reaffirming the right to its necessary presence on stage.
CORPS CITOYEN is a multidisciplinary artistic collective based between Tunis and Milan. The collective uses dance, theatre, poetry, video, animation, writing and anthropological research to create new contemporary narratives. The group’s objective is to activate social reflection through the expressive potential of art and bodies, building a space for creative resistance.
