The Tribunal becomes theatre. Artist Patricia Allio proposes a documentary performance on migration policies inspired by the session that the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal held in Paris in 2018 on the rights of migrants and refugees.
The theatrical Project DISPAK DISPAC’H stems from the study and participation in the research project carried out by the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal on the violation of the rights of migrants and refugees launched in 2017 and concluded in 2020 with the dissemination of the final report of the panel of experts.
Patricia Allio transfers the experience to theatre, suspended between two words, Dispak and Dispac’h. In Breton, Dispak means ‘open, unfolded, uncovered, untidy, in disorder’, while Dispac’h translates as ‘agitation, revolt, revolution’. Two words to activate a discourse that seeks truth beyond laws and verdicts. An actress, a dancer and an actor, citizen, activists and lawyers recount the obstacles that await asylum seekers. It is not a matter of transcribing reality, but of making an evolutionary and performative transposition of it.
The show, after its first tour in 2021 at the theatres of Rennes, Théâtre National de Bretagne (on 10, 11 and 13 November 2021) and Brest, Le Quartz (from 25/11 to 27/11/2021), will be presented at the next Avignon Festival from 15 to 21 July, then in Marseille in the autumn and in 2024 in Paris and other places.
