Based on the observation that no video or audio recordings remain of Michel Foucault’s famous inaugural lecture at the Collège de France on December 2, 1970, stage director Fanny de Chaillé draws from the text of the lecture, published under the title The Order of Discourse, to explore the embodiment of thought. In what way can discourse be said to have a material reality? In what way is it a site of struggle, of domination, of servitude? In what way is it a matter of disquietude?
