Example text

It calls for individual thinking. The use of video in The Lobster Shop belongs to a realistic approach that is only a limited part of the performance as a whole and calls upon an ethical questioning on the part of the audience. As with Sireuil, images ‘activate’ the audience beyond the boundaries of the performance towards an ontological form of reflection (on humankind, violence, freedom…). Critical Function While it is easy to associate such ‘activation of the audience’ with a Brechtian heritage, effects in Lauwers’ play are geared more to meditation than to social critique.

The fact that the actor, like Christ, knows very well how the drama will end only adds to the blasphemous nature of acting. The Church does not condemn the actor for playing false but rather for playing real (Friedland 2002: 5, 17-20). But this notion of acting-as-metamorphosis changes profoundly during the second half of the eighteenth century. The actor François Riccoboni and the writer Denis Diderot reject almost simultaneously the idea of ‘transubstantiation’ on the stage. ‘When someone has the bad luck to truly feel what he is trying to express as a feeling, he isn’t capable of acting anymore,’ says Riccoboni, to the dismay of the majority of his colleagues.

The performance deconstructs the impact of media by exposing how they play on perception frames. On the set, a lecturer, Jacques Delcuvellerie, starts a long speech in response to media subscribing to an essentially ethnic distinction with: ‘Hutus, qu’est-ce que cela signifie? ’ (What does it mean to be a Hutu? ). But theatre will also show the constraints limiting the media: the journalist called Bee Bee Bee, a central character in the narrative interlaced in Rwanda 94, will not be able to broadcast the television programme resulting from what she has gone through to understand genocidal mechanisms.
