By: Mohamed El Khatib Light: Jonathan Douchet Sound: Arnaud Léger Dramaturgy, Assistant: Vassia Chavaroche Cast: Hinda Abdelaoui, Olga Abolina, Louis Atlan, Laure Blatter, Aymen Bouchou, Clara Bretheau, Valentin Clabault, Maxime Crochard, Julien Lewkowicz, Arthur Rémi, Raphaëlle Rousseau, Salomé Scotto, Merwane Tajouiti, Lucas Van Poucke “My Parents” is a performative proposal by Mohamed El Khatib and the young Théâtre National de Bretagne actors that ventures into the tender and cruel view that children have on their parents, what they know and do not know about them. A great unknown: the love and intimate life of their parents. A blind spot that the author and director explored and which prevails in a political reflection on what generational transmission means today. With, as always with the artist, a skilful blurring on stage between acting and reality.
In this vibrant and touching improvisational piece, the taboo around the intimacy of one’s parents becomes a cause for shining a new light on family relationships. Performance in French, with translation into Romanian and English Performance not recommended to audiences under the age of 12 Duration: 1h (with one intermission)
