Our language is theater and we carry Annie Ernaux’s writing project with it. By picking Annie Ernaux’s book, we pay tribute to her work and we measure the legacy she leaves for our generation : the feeling of social shame can now be a form of knowledge and so, possibly, a creative strength. But we also measure that her work is not over and has to be continued. Some words, voices, bodies, faces are still absent in the public area. We have to find out how to change that within theater.
