On Tuesday evening, the Salle de Conférence was filled with an audience eager to hear Claire Nancy, artist, actress, and author, discuss the recent release of her book Euripide et le parti des femmes.
The book builds from the problematics of silenced feminist expression, of isolating women to only what their interior can convey. It cites the importance of power that is grounded in giving speech, action, and creation to what was previously left without depiction and display. The evening featured a reading by actress Dido Lycoudis, and critical analyses by Monique Trédé of the École Normale Supérieure and the Académie des Inscriptions et Belles Lettres, Mireille Calle-Gruber, writer, professor emerita of the Sorbonne Nouvelle and specialist in women’s studies, and Daniel Loayza, philosopher, dramatist, and artistic adviser for the Odéon-Théâtre de l’Europe.
