MAD

Les Mots à défendre

10 > 19.03.2023

The MAD are two weekends to touch the power of words.

The invitation to travel through texts to find the Théâtre National in all its states, to follow the voices on every level. Crossover projects, unabashed in their hybridity, will thus find their place.

The MAD are two weekends built in consultation with the associated authors, one, by Caroline Lamarche, devoted to literature and dramatic texts, the other, by Joëlle Sambi, focusing on poetry, slam and urban cultures. The MAD are two weekends welcoming propositions from here or elsewhere. So many opportunities to highlight the art of telling, of translating, of storytelling, to seek out fringe imaginations which, modestly, stubbornly, charged with resilient energy, prepare the world of tomorrow. The MAD are two eclectic, political, engaged and festive weekends! The MAD are Joris Lacoste & Ictus, Casey, Jeanne Balibar, the Lipopo Slam Collective, Koko Slam Gang and many others…
