Meeting organized in the context of the new staging of Copi's L'Homosexuel ou la difficulté de s'exprimer, created by Thibaud Croisy and presented from May 17 to 23, 2022 at the T2G Théâtre de Gennevilliers.
First staged by Jorge Lavelli fifty years ago at the Théâtre de la Cité internationale (Paris), L'Homosexuel ou la difficulté de s'exprimer, an emblematic play of Copi's work, has had many versions.
As part of his research and the re-publication of the text by Christian Bourgois, director Thibaud Croisy offers a journey into the original creation through the images of photographer Claude Lê-Anh. This presentation will be an opportunity to activate archives, to try to "see" a play through what remains of it, and to play the game of comparison between the first production and the one presented this season at the Théâtre de Gennevilliers. The spectators who attended Jorge Lavelli's creation can also contribute to this presentation by telling us what they remember. Or what they have forgotten...
