Which lives deserve to be mourned? How to open oneself up, how to resist? Sit down in the agora of Dispak Dispac’h with its protagonists and listen to the masterful indictement delivered in 2018 by the Groupe d’information et de soutien des immigrés (GISTI) before the Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal, forcing Europe to face the violations of the rights of migrants and refugees our continent has been guilty of systematically allows. Actors and members of civil society will take turn speaking, listening, watching, dancing, and creating with us a space of emotional contagion: such is the device imagined by Patricia Allio, author and director for film and theatre from Brittany, whose outlook and practice upend our sensibilities and target our Europe and its renunciations. In the continuity of Dispak Dispac'h, a "crépuscule européen" is then proposed to the spectators.

After this last show, the audience will be invited to participate in a meal. The evening will continue with performances and new testimonies, where we will express our refusal and the need for a world without borders.
With the participation of Bridget Anderson, Damien Careme, Moctar Dan Yaye, Jalila Khenissi, David Yambio

Dispak Dispac'h by Patricia Allio is published by Solitaires intempestifs.
