Live broadcast of the performance from the Theater L'Empreinte, Scène nationale Brive-Tulle
_JEANNE_DARK_, that’s the name of 16-year-old Jeanne’s Instagram account, who comes from a Catholic family and lives in a lower middle-class area in a suburb of Orléans. For the last few months, she’s been subjected to malicious jibes about her virginity from her fellow students. One night, alone in her room, she decides she won’t stay quiet any longer: she speaks up and she does it live on Instagram. In front of the mirror, which her smartphone serves as, she tells the story of and invents herself, dances, films, explodes, transforms herself, switching between exposing and performing herself.
This second collaboration between French theatre-maker Marion Siéfert (*1987) and dancer, choreographer and actor Helena de Laurens (*1988) is a show that takes place on stage and on social media at the same time. On that evening, _JEANNE_DARK_ will be performed in the Theater L'Empreinte, Scène nationale in Brive-Tulle in France. And you can experience the same show live on the Instagram account @_jeanne_dark_
at the same time. For this you need an Instagram account yourself, or you need to set one up. Unfortunately it’s not possible to stream the live performance on Instagram on www.fastforw.art
, but we will provide you with the German and the English surtitles for this French production there. This means you can follow _JEANNE_DARK_ on your smartphone and see the translation of the play on your computer at the same time. Or you can arrange Instagram and the fastforw.art
website in two windows beside each other on your screen. Try it out and experience a very special digital performance.
_JEANNE_DARK_ is the fourth play by director and writer Marion Siéfert, who was a guest at Fast Forward last year with her production DU SALE !
and won the festival jury prize.
