A lecture-performance by Bruno Latour
Directed by Frédérique Aït-Touati

“Inside” is a lecture-performance by Bruno Latour, one of France’s leading thinkers. A theatrical thought experiment, “Inside” asks how we can re-think our relationship to the planet in times of environmental catastrophe.

Humans have long thought they walk on a globe, on the Globe. But in recent years, geochemists have shown us a completely different planet, by turning attention to the “critical zone,” this thin surface film of Earth where water, soil, subsoil and the world of living beings interact. If this area is critical, it is because life, human activities, and their resources are concentrated there. Can we change the way we see the Earth, no longer as the distant blue ball lost in the cosmos, but rather, in cross-section? Our way of walking on Earth would no longer be “on” but “with.” Such a change of perception is a matter of perception, sensation and modeling.

For ten years, philosopher Bruno Latour and director and researcher Frédérique Aït-Touati have been working on projects at the intersection of research and theater. Their projects strive to stage the process of a developing thought, putting it in a place of modeling and perceptual experiment.

This performance is organized in parallel with the “French Natures” conference-festival organized by Frédérique Aït-Touati and Phillip John Usher for the Center for French Language and Cultures at New York University. For details, see here: http://frenchnatures.org/
