Reporters de guerre

Sébastien Foucault
18/10/2022 22/10/2022
  • Duration: 2h
  • Location : Salle de l’Œil vert

The first piece by actor Sébastien Foucault questions how violence is depicted. Twenty-five years after the siege of Sarajevo, after the massacres in Srebrenica and Tuzla, which brought the eyes of the entire world media to the centre of a ravaged Europe, what do we still remember about the wars in the former Yugoslavian Republic? Sébastien Foucault went to meet reporters who covered these disputes. He investigated in Sarajevo, Mostar, Tuzla and Srebrenica, before returning with RTBF correspondent Françoise Wallemacq to trace her reports from the early 1990s. She is the figure we discover on stage, alongside Vedrana Božinović, a former journalist during the Bosnian War, who has since become an actor, and Michel Villée, a press officer at MSF Belgium who is now a puppeteer. The performers use theatrical resources, and their proficiency in a variety of performance techniques, to translate old radio reports into artistic gems. This fascinating show, which is part play and part documentary, speaks to the responsibility of telling stories, the limitations and the fight against indifference and being forgotten, which is reassuring, but exhausting!
