Three works by Milo Rau will be presented in Beirut at the beginning of November 2018: The films "The Congo Tribunal", “The Moscow Trials” and the performance "Breivik's Statement." A small excerpt from an extensive oeuvre, consisting of more than 50 books, films and theatre projects, in very different formats. Milo Rau became known for his historical reenactments ("The Last Days of the Ceausescus" and "Hate Radio") and challenged politics and justice with activist projects, trials, tribunals and assemblies (such as "The General Assembly"), his theatre productions (including "Five Easy Pieces" and "La Reprise") cause a sensation at festivals worldwide.

In this masterclass, Milo Rau and his dramaturg Stefan Bläske present their work and the concept of "global realism": What does it mean to be an artist in the globalized world at the beginning of the 21st century? What can and what has to be done, and what is allowed in art? What are the crimes and tragedies of our time, and how can you tell about them on stage?

Traditionally theatre is the representation and repetition of what has been. But how does one get from the (re)presentation to the engagement and commitment? From passivity to activity? And from pure representation to a presence of the real?

Using examples from their own works, Milo Rau and Stefan Bläske present their idea of a "Theater of the Real" and of the "City Theatre of the Future", which they are currently building up by taking over the artistic direction of NTGent in Belgium, which will think globally and tour internationally. In the masterclass, we will discuss the aesthetic and political aspects of this theatre together.

تقدّم ضمن مهرجان أرصفة زقاق في بيروت ثلاثة أعمال لـ ميلو راو: فيلمي "محكمة الكونغو" و"محاكمات موسكو" والأداء المسرحي "بيان بريفيك". هذه الأعمال الثلاثة ليست إلّا مقتطفات صغيرة من رصيد راو الذي يتكون من أكثر من ٥٠ عملاً. أصبح ميلو راو معروفًا بإعادة تمثيل التاريخ ("الأيام الأخيرة للزوج الحاكم تشاوتشيسكو" و"راديو الكراهية") كما تحدى السياسة والعدالة من خلال مشاريع نشاطية ومحاكمات ومجالس ("المجلس الأعلى")، وعرف بإنتاجاته المسرحية (بما في ذلك "خمسة قطع سهلة" و La Reprise ) التي تركت أثراً مدوياً في المهرجانات العالمية.

في هذه المحاضرة المختصة، يقدّم المخرج ميلو راو والكاتب المسرحي ستيفان بلاسكي أعمالهما ومفهوم "الواقعية العالمية": ماذا يعني أن تكون فنانًا في زمن العولمة في بداية القرن الحادي والعشرين؟ ما هو الممكن وما هو الواجب وما هو المسموح به في الفن؟ ما هي جرائم ومآسي عصرنا، وكيف يمكننا التحدث عنها على خشبة المسرح؟

المسرح في معناه التقليدي هو إعادة تكرار ما حصل. ولكن كيف يمكن الانتقال من (إعادة) التصوير إلى المساهمة والالتزام؟ من القبول بالحال إلى الفعل؟ ومن التمثيل البحت إلى  تجسيد الحقيقة؟

مستعينين بأمثلة من اعمالهما، سيقدم راو وبلاسك فكرتي"مسرح الواقع" و "مسرح المدينة للمستقبل"، اللتان تتواجدان في صلب مشروعهما القيد التنفيذ منذ استلامها الإدارة الفنية لـ NTGent  في بلجيكا. خلال ورشة العمل، سيتم التركيز على الجوانب الجمالية والسياسية لهذا المسرح.

Organizer

Zoukak Theatre Company and Cultural association

Zoukak Theater Company, created in 2006, is a non-hierarchical structure, dedicated to theatre practice as a social and political involvement, with a belief in theatre as a space for common reflection and in collectivity as a position against marginalizing systems.

Zoukak's productions are created in series of common research raising questions around certain themes: gender -"Silk Thread" (2012), religion and power - "Lucena: Obedience Training" (2013), Lebanese history - "Perform Autopsy" (2013) and "Heavens" (2014), death and immortality - "He Who Saw Everything" (2015) and "Death Comes Through the Eyes" (2014), childhood and violence - "School Acts" (2014), "Organs Tissue and Candy Games" (2014) and "Innocent Violence" (2016), Migration - "The Battle Scene" (2015) among others… Their work has been shown in several cities in the Middle East, Europe, the United States, Africa and South Asia (MUCEM museum, 62 Center for Theatre and Dance, The New York Public Library, Ibsen Center, ITFOK, The Battersea Arts Center, The Southbank Center…).

They have been commissioned by international festivals, theatres and universities to create original work: NYUAD's Performing Arts Center, UAE; Krefeld/Monchengladbach City Theaters, Germany; Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center, University of Houston, Texas; Theaterfestival Schwindelfrei Mannheim, Williams College, Massachusetts; LIFT and The Royal Court Theatre, London among others. Zoukak members have participated in residencies, panels and given workshops and lectured at universities and in non-academic contexts, in the Middle East, Europe, the United States and Africa.

In addition to that Zoukak has been working with marginalized communities across Lebanon for the last ten years (disabled children, women victims of domestic violence, incarcerated youths, individuals affected by war, including refugees…), applying theatre on various levels. The company developed a specific approach to psychosocial interventions of drama therapy and socially engaged theatre, providing workshops and training programs to diverse groups, and devising performances in different Lebanese regions and in various contexts locally and abroad, including Calais' migrants and refugee camp, in France and in refugee camps in Serbia.

Zoukak endeavours to develop an environment of dialogue and reflection around the performing arts in Lebanon and to provide artistic development and international touring opportunities for local artists. The company produces collaborations, residencies and events with international artists in the company's studio, curating since 2013 "Zoukak Sidewalks", an international performance platform and "Focus Liban" a showcase for the diffusion of work by local emerging artists.

Zoukak is three-time AFAC award grantee, in 2012 the company received the Ibsen Scholarship award and in 2014 the Anna Lindh Foundation's Euromed Dialogue Award for social resilience and creativity.
