“To the extent of the impossible” by Tiago Rodrigues, “not a documentary piece but documented”


A play on humanitarians is the bet taken up by Tiago Rodrigues, Portuguese director and author and new director of the Festival d’Avignon. He presents at the Théâtre de l’Odéon, in Paris, as part of the Festival d’Automne, To the extent of the impossible. The play draws its material from the stories of humanitarian workers interviewed by the actors. She takes up the challenge of representing the unrepresentable through the poetry of the text. Tiago Rodrigues shows human tragedies with a modesty that makes it possible to bear their harshness.
