Description

Too human? A work which stirs up our past, questions the present and imagines the future, adapting the famous novel by Vercors.

It all started when the Musée d’Orsay extended an invitation to Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota and the Troupe du Théâtre de la Ville. An original work was to be devised for the museum’s exhibition on “The Origins of the World – The Invention of Nature in the 19th Century.” The unusual feature was the idea of including scientific advisers such as the neurosurgeon Carine Karachi and the astrophysicist Jean Audouze, having them involved throughout the process, seeing how the questions raised at a time of uncertainty because of the pandemic may be seen as the first elements escaping from a Pandora’s box of unknown scale.

ZOO tackles questions about humans and animals, in particular as addressed since the mid-19th century and Darwin’s On the Origin of Species. The play is an adaptation by Vercors of his own novel Les animaux dénaturés, and tracks down evidence of the famous “missing link.” Debates are held as trials, with many witnesses to be examined and cross-examined. Humanity and humanism are central to the work

BASED ON « ZOO OR THE PHILANTHROPIC MURDERER » AND « UNNATURAL ANIMALS » BY Vercors DIRECTED BY Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota
