Ariane Mnouchkine, the founder and director of the Théâtre du Soleil, has been continuously producing masterpieces with historical and political themes over many decades. Referring to traditional performances of both the East and the West, she is a theatre pioneer whose unique theatrical organisation eschews hierarchical order.
Ariane is the current Kyoto Prize Laureate for Arts and Philosophy.
This event features a mixture of live and recorded material, including a stream of Ariane's lecture from the Kyoto Prize ceremony in November 2019. This is followed by a live exclusive Q&A, with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions.
