Bruno Latour et Frédérique Aït-Touati


Moving Earths, the second part of The Terrestrial Trilogy, places thought processes on the stage. A desk and some chalk: together we must find a new way to describe our world. The actor Duncan Evennou presents a lecture-cum-performance based on texts by the philosopher Bruno Latour, using his thought as a vibrant new theatrical material that is highly relevant to today’s experience.


Reshaping the world

The Terrestrial Trilogy sets out to challenge our preconceived ideas about Planet Earth, which we live in and walk on with hardly a thought. Do these perceptions correspond to reality? Not exactly, if we are to believe the sociologist, ethnologist and philosopher Bruno Latour and the director Frédérique Aït-Touati. Half stage production, half lecture, the show takes the audience into a field of artistic and philosophical experimentation where ideas circulate, express themselves and adopt new forms. Inside explored visual alternatives to the obsessive, deceptive image of the "globe" and focused on the "critical zone", the narrow space where the air, the ground, the subterranean world and the world of living things interact. In Moving Earths we experience the Earth in motion: a responsive planet. Looking back at the Galilean revolution, this lecture-cum-performance piece connects the transformation of our perception of the world that took place in 1610 (not only was the Earth not the centre of the universe, but it moved!) with a contemporary discovery that is just as surprising: the Earth is sensitive. Galileo told us that the Earth is in motion; today's scientists tell us that it experiences emotion. It trembles and responds to what humans do to it, and confirms that its destiny is linked to our own.
