Prologue is a mixed-media performance created as a composition of moments - snapshots into the life and thought of French philosopher, activist, and mystic, Simone Weil (1909 - 1943.) As an actor prepares to play Simone Weil, he reflects on the mystical and artistic processes, and on the indispensable role of "the other" to bring depth and meaning to our experience.

<![CDATA[Roger Bernat's "Domini públic" (Public Space), the US premiere in Washington DC]]>Escèniques. Washington DC, 17/09/2018
In a public square, the audience, wearing headphones, moves through the space answering simple questions with wordless gestures. As the performance evolves, Domini públic becomes at once a three-dimensional mapping of societal structures and an embodied exploration of individual agency and collective power. The spectators become the play’s protagonists as this communal ritual uses game-like structures to bring to life the nature and ramifications of our assigned roles. 

Monday, September 17 at 6:30 p.m. in Georgetown University’s Red Square.

Free and open to the public. Reservations are strongly encouraged.
