De la scène à la crypte : la famille et la guerre civile chez Wajdi Mouawad
This paper analyses how Wajdi Mouawad articulates, in the enclosed space of theatrical performance, family, tragedy, and civil war via the recurring figure of the twin. Mouawad's tragedies open a space allowing reflection on the consequences of the violence of civil war both at familial and national levels. But if Le Sang des promesses (Arles, Montréal: Actes Sud/Leméac, 2009) reenacts theatrically the release of hitherto silent traumatic memory, it is also, more broadly, a reflection on the vain attempt to escape a tragic Mediterranean fate.

Abstract

This paper analyses how Wajdi Mouawad articulates, in the enclosed space of theatrical performance, family, tragedy, and civil war via the recurring figure of the twin. Mouawad's tragedies open a space allowing reflection on the consequences of the violence of civil war both at familial and national levels. But if Le Sang des promesses (Arles, Montréal: Actes Sud/Leméac, 2009) reenacts theatrically the release of hitherto silent traumatic memory, it is also, more broadly, a reflection on the vain attempt to escape a tragic Mediterranean fate.
