SEGAL TALKS: Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota

An update on the situation for theatre artists in France

Monday 1 June 2020

The Martin E. Segal Theatre Center presents SEGAL TALKS: Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Monday 1 June 2020 at 9 a.m. PDT (San Francisco, UTC-7) / 11 a.m. CDT (Chicago, UTC-5) / 12 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC-4) / 17:00 BST (London, UTC+1) / 18:00 CEST (Berlin, UTC+2).

Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota is the artistic director of Théâtre de la Ville in Paris since 2008—and he became the director of the legendary Festival d’Automne in Paris in 2011. He is the son of Portuguese actress Teresa Mota and French director and playwright Richard Demarcy.

Demarcy-Mota‘s recent Théâtre de la Ville productions include Alice and other wonders by Carroll/Melquiot and Miller’s The Crucible. Demarcy-Mota‘s stagings of Ionesco's Rhinoceros, Pirandello’s Six Characters in Search of an Author, and Camus’s State of Siege were all presented at BAM, The Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York. In 2021 Demarcy-Mota will stage Killing Game by Ionesco, a play—like Camus ‘s State of Siege—about an epidemic.

At Théâtre de la Ville Demarcy-Mota created the International Danse Elargie competition; the Parcours Enfance et Jeunesse festival for young audience, and the Chantiers d'Europe festival dedicated to young European theatre artists with the goal "to implement a Europe of artists, an alternative to endless economic approaches". Since 2019 Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota brings together artists and scientists in his 18- XXI Gateway Project.
