Antitube at the Carrefour international de théâtre

On June 3rd and 4th, 2012, Antitube will be collaborating with the Carrefour international de théâtre. Two complimentary events will demonstrate the diversity of contemporary theater practices. The first event proposes a historic look at one of Europe’s major theater events: the Festival d’Avignon. From artistic practices to complex backroom political dealings, the theater’s true nature is shown as it is, in proximity to the social sphere.

Following this, we will be organizing a round table event in order to encourage theater and film artists to exchange ideas with one another. As in past years, several of the productions presented at the Carrefour show film and video influences in their approach to direction. How has cinema drawn from the theater? To what point is contemporary theater in debt to the hybrid image-based forms of expression? We will base our discussion on these questions.

Le Carrefour international de théâtre and Antitube invite you to an exceptional evening in the company of Bernard Faivre d’Acrier, who was director of the Festival d’Avignon from 1980 to 1984 and from 1993 to 2003. M. Faivre d’Arcier is an essential figure of the French cultural and theatrical scenes and he will present his film Avignon : Cours d’honneur et champs de bataille, which was produced by Arte, a cultural television network that he cofounded. The projection will be followed by an informal meeting with the director at Le Zinc Café-Bar.

June 4th, 5:00pm Images and Stages. The Relationships Between Theater and Screen Arts.

A discussion will be held surrounding the complex and stimulating relationships that theater directors and artists maintain with the screen arts. In what way does cinema symbolize a referential horizon with which the notion of space in the theater may recompose? In more practical terms, how do screen arts such as animation influence contemporary theater practices? These are some of the questions that will be kicking off this animated discussion!
