At a crossroads between reality and imagination, the Other represents one of the most attractive creatures for performing arts. Whether it comes from foreign lands, from fringes, from dark areas of the imagination or from intimacy, it structures the society’s founding myths and goes through their social representation systems.
This book questions the Savage and its avatars, the Stranger, the Other that looks like us a little, almost, completely; and studies these figures of otherness, of which many are still operating nowadays.
Meeting place: Palais de la Porte Dorée on June 9 from 2:30 until 5 p.m.
