In Violences, Léa Drouet attempts to bring us the reverse of the dominant images of violence. Considering that those images – through their transfixing power – keep us from acting and feeling, she tries to infiltrate movement inside the pre-constructed identifications of subjects and situations. Alone on stage, inside a sandbox, she builds and undoes architectures made of walls, landscapes, borders, through which the storytelling evolves. With a dramaturgy of resonances, the story of her grandmother Mado — forced to cross the country to escape from the Vél’ d’Hiv roundup — rebounds in recent events – the story of Mawda, a 2-year-old Kurdish girl shot dead by a Belgian police officer in 2018 – that echo what contemporary violence and its forms of resistance can be. Maybe it is in the fragility of sand grains that one can find the strength – and not the power - to piece together a world which assumes its conflicts outside of the mere state of war.


Léa Drouet is a french director and actress. She has a degree in stage direction from the INSAS — Brussels Film and Drama School, and has been living and working in Brussels since 2010. Her work takes different forms and flows between installation, theater and performance. She founded the production house Vaisseau in 2014. She created 0& (2014), Wo aber Gefahr ist, wächst das Rettende auch (2016), Squiggle (2017), Boundary Games (2018), Les Hostilités (2019) and Violences (2020). Since June 2020, Drouet is the new artistic coordinator for theater of Atelier 210 in Brussels.
