First performed on the 10th March 2020 at Nanterre-Amandiers, centre dramatique national.

After his renditions of classics by the likes of Molière, Shakespeare, Sophocles, Racine, among others, Gwenaël Morin takes on The Theatre and its Double by Antonin Artaud, using the manifesto of the “Theatre of Cruelty” as a premise. With actors and audience members settled inside a giant white bubble, the director examines his experience through the lens of Artaud’s theories and proceeds to destroy his own work as he pursues a different theatre in the rubble.
