Julie SermonMorts ou vifs, pour une écologie des arts vivants
“While ecological issues haunt our thoughts and guide our individual and collective behaviours, Julie Sermon analyses in this essay the resonance of these issues in the field of performing arts.
How do they affect the ways in which works are written, produced and performed, but also receive and talk about them? What can performing arts, according to their specific modalities, make us think of and in this conjuncture?
Through several concrete examples, the author tells us what ecology thinking makes happen on contemporary stages, by focusing on the thematic and aesthetic aspects of the shows as well as their creative processes. In the context of the French-language performing arts, this book takes into account the tools and reflections of ecocriticism, a transdisciplinary theoretical approach that has emerged in the English-language academic sphere in the 1980s, which aims in particular to renew the framework of analysis of the works produced by problematizing their links with ecology.
Morts ou vifs presents itself as a point of hook allowing to generate the debate, and renews our ways of seeing and thinking the works produced over the last ten years.”
