La Terre se révolte is a joint project by director Sara Llorca and the Syrian poet – and refugee in France – Omar Youssef Souleimane, which combines theatre and dance to question the theme of otherness.

The play is set in Paris at the end of 2017. One night, in the intimate space of an attic room, a French philosophy student and a Syrian poet who has been granted political asylum in France forge an original epic, that is both tragic and comic.
They talk, drink beer and get to know each other through heated discussions, which form a vast contemporary saga, a philosophical tale that tackles the deepest geocultural issues of our century.  The audience travels with them, as well as with all the other characters they summon, between the East and the West, between dream and reality, past and present and great and small stories. The journey is portrayed by four actors, together in a space that is constantly being transformed.
Reflections on exile, war, difference, terrorism and family heritage… Without making moral judgements, La Terre se révolte highlights how we feel deep down about our era, how it drives our thoughts and what we should be doing differently.
