Theater - in French, subtitled in English
Working Title Festival
Theatre artist and choreographer, Eric Arnal-Burtschy has also been involved in the French army for several years and has participated in various military operations in the Sahel. In his semi-autobiographical monologue Why We Fight, he intertwines his own story with historical references, numerous stories and fragments from other people’s diaries to explore what can engage each of us. What are we fighting for?
The title of the show is derived from a series of propaganda films designed to explain to the American public why the United States intervened during the Second World War. Arnal-Burtschy wonders what Why We Fight can mean today. A gesture that is intimate and vibrant with contemporary relevance.
Eric Arnal-Burtschy obtained a master's degree in European Studies before moving on to the performing and visual arts. With Lyllie Rouvière he created Bouncing Universe in a Bulk,a diptych on the universe and the infinite, and with Clara Furey Ciguë, a solo on the relationship to freedom and solitude. His latest creation, Deep are the Woods, is an immersive installation in which light is the interpreter. Always interested in diplomatic and strategic issues, he is also a reserve officer in the French army.
