D’après William Shakespeare / Aurore Fattier



“Once upon a time there was a beautiful and very valiant Moor in Venice. His prowess and his prudence in the art of war earned him high regard. It turns out that, moved by his courage, a young and noble Venetian named Desdemona fell in love with the Moor, and that, overcome by her beauty, he returned his love to her”. Thus begins the fable of Othello … before Iago spreads murder and infamy in the ear of the Moor. Aurore Fattier gets on with emancipating our reading of the stubborn stigmatisation of foreigners accumulated over generations. In order to inhabit Othello from the inside, she deconstructs the narrative thread, puts it within the focus of contemporary texts, stories of Black slaves and sets it in a Black novel aesthetic. The violent desire that is denatured in a desire for violence is carried by free jazz, video and love songs. Behind the tragedy of jealousy, there is the unbearable fragility of love in the face of the rampage of men.
