Presentation

In Maxime Chazalet's Le Misanthrope, care is taken to understand what each character says, with their affirmations, omissions and contradictions. Because, in order for the situation to evolve, everyone's words must be heard. Alceste confronts the law of make-believe with a robust certainty: from now on, men will organise their relationships between themselves in the name of the boldness of their hearts. Hearts that must be sincere or life in society will be unbearable.

We would suggest that Alceste is extremely insightful: there are other ways of living in the world. This possibility is accompanied by a terrifying negativity that engulfs the piece.
This is a symptom of our century. We are regularly forced to protest, to say 'no'. But our ability to protest about the state of the world does not guarantee the transformation of that world. And so the question we are faced with is how to extract from this equation a positive hypothesis that is not subordinate to the world order.
