1983

« Staging the richness of life that makes up the creoleness of our French identities ». The ambitious project of Margaux Eskenazi – associate artist at Les Gémeaux – and the Nova company, reveals with 1983 a new elucidation. The play takes its origin – and its name – from the March for equality and against racism that left Marseille on October 15, 1983, a major event in the struggle for recognition of the children of French immigrants. Police violence, lack of diversity, the rise of the extreme right, discrimination: the play largely echoes the major themes of today. It is part of Alice Carré and Margaux Eskenazi’s exploration of the stories we inherit and what we wish to do with them. Sharing residence between Les Gémeaux and the Théâtre de Bagneux, the Nova company relies on veracious groundwork to build its shows. After the unforgettable Et le cœur fume encore, presented by Les Gémeaux at the Théâtre Victor Hugo in Bagneux in March 2022, 1983 is no exception to the rule and « anchors itself around the company and its devising skills for the stage in order to make the words of those who have been silent for so long heard », according to the director.
