Using theatre to promote peace and neutralise extreme nationalism

By Rosslyn Hyams

In this week’s Art in France, RFi’s Rosslyn Hyams meets young director Justine Wojyniak who has staged a recent Polish play in French with an international cast.

Our Class or Notre Classe at the Epée de Bois in Vincennes, takes place mainly in a village in Poland, and spans seventy years from the pre-World War Two years of the 1930s and up to the early two thousands. It’s about preserving peace and the undesirable effects of nationalism.
