Pères, enquête sur les paternités d’aujourd’hui

Élise Chatauret, Thomas Pondevie

Show with English surtitles

How do we exist as fathers today? From helicopter dads to pater familias, the Babel company investigates. Created and written using interviews, “Peres” opens the doors of a number of French households. On stage, two actors take on the stories collected and paint a series of portraits, weaving new discourses. Little by little, a question emerges: how can we imagine fatherhood outside of patriarchy?

What is the man of the future? How will men and women raise these men of the future? — Casey
