Jeanne Tripier Jeanne D'Arc

Jeanne Tripier Jeanne D'Arc

a solo performance work which explores and challenges the relationship between the representational / theatrical and the phenomenological / performative. Its dramatic nucleus is comprised of three interwoven strands of narrative: the biography of Jeanne Tripier (a spiritualist medium and schizophrenic, incarcerated in the asylum of Maison-Blanche, near Paris, in 1934); the novelized biography of antoninus Heliogabalus (Roman Emperor) by antonin artaud; and the biography of Paul amlehn. During the course of the work, these three strains of narrative reflect, intersect, and infect each other.

Jeanne Tripier Jeanne d'arc est une performance solo overe qui explore et defie le rapport entre le representatif / theatral et le phenomenologique / performatif. Son noyau dramatique est compose de trois fils narratifs entrelacees: la biographie de Jeanne Tripier (une medium spirite et schizophrene, qui fut incarceree dans l'asile de Maison-Blanche, pres de Paris, en 1934); la biographie romancee d'antoninus Heliogabale (empereur romain) par antonin artaud; et la biographie de Paul amlehn. au cours de ce projet, ces trois recits se refletent, s'entrecoupent, et s'infectent entre eux.
