Ten French and American young actors, engaged in a revisited Oresteia
For this caustic comedy for ten international young actors on the manipulation of fear, Arnaud Meunier collaborates with Aleshea Harris, Afro-American author and “spoken words” performer. Overthrow of the bourgeois order, insurrectionary movements, “Fore!” is first of all a young people manifesto. Since 2015 terror attacks in France and Ferguson shooting of an unarmed black teenager, what makes up a society?
