Inheritance, citizenship, identity: from the intimate to the political, Baptiste Amann imbues this epic theatrical crossing with the vibrant colours of our age.
At the centre of these three Territoires (Nous sifflerons la Marseillaise… / …d’une prison l’autre… / …et tout sera pardonné ?) are Lyn, Benjamin, Samuel, and Hafiz, four brothers and a sister who have grown up in a working-class suburb. It is here, on the margins of French society, among people rocked by the trials of living together as well as by repeated attacks on the humanistic values of the Republic, that Baptiste Amann has set his family saga – halfway between fiction and historical narrative. Far from creating a sociological tract or a political manifesto, in this piece the writer and director shines a light on the modern age in a ‘theatre of the everyday’ traversed by the ghosts of the past. This thoroughly human piece with its feet firmly on the ground tells of democracy, activism, anger, hope… Where might our need for freedom take us? Can we change what destiny appears to have in store for us? Baptiste Amann ignores the exhortations of moderation to create a trilogy that overflows with the unexpected – a kaleidoscopic fresco which gives a voice to the so-called disillusioned generation.
