Synopsis

Marion gives us a different view of feminist struggles: that of the enemy. The public, equipped with headphones, is guided on a walk in the urban space to explore the world of Incels *. This experience mixes a personal story with that of an incel. During this tour, each spectator will be able to personalize their experience to enter the mysteries of masculinists..

*The incel subculture (English neologism for involuntary celibacy) designates misogynist online communities whose members define themselves as unable to find a romantic or sexual partner. Those who claim to be incels are almost exclusively men who gather on the internet around a common cause: hatred of women.



PUBLIC MUST HAVE THEIR OWN MOBILE PHONE WITH INTERNET ACCESS, A SET OF EARPHONES/HEADPHONES AND DOWNLOAD THE AUDIO FILE

Bio

Marion Thomas
Author, director and performer, divides her time between Nantes and Lausanne.
She studied staging La Manufacture (Haute Ecole de Théâtre de Suisse Romande).
Finding the reality very disappointing, she meets on the internet with bizarre people. From these virtual errances, Marion draws points of view later integrated into broader narratives to create spaces of friction and conciliation. She likes video games, constructivism, horses and feminist science fiction.
