Bruno Latour: Gaïa Global Circus

Bruno Latour V3

Archived Event

No Longer Showing.

The French philosopher, anthropologist, and sociologist Bruno Latour presents a theatrical experiment inspired by a paradox: Although we are confronted with global warming and the prospect of mankind’s end, we feel almost nothing. Gaia Global Circus takes place in the gap between the significance of such stakes and the limited repertoire of concepts and feelings with which we attempt to approach them today.

A project by Bruno Latour
A play by Pierre Daubigny
Directed by Frédérique Aït-Touati and Chloé Latour
Compagnie AccenT and Soif Compagnie
With Claire Astruc, Luigi Cerri, Jade Collinet and Matthieu Protin

September 24–25, 8pm
Tickets $15

Co-presented with the David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute for Media Innovation at the Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University.
