Sometimes societies, like human beings, break, bend, divide and even shatter. Social events that influence each society at a different level, sometimes also enable a revival or rebirth from devastation. Riboulet and Boucheron’s book, Prendre Dates, focuses on these moments of social crisis, and the moments before and after. Director Delphine Ciavaldini based Taking Stock, a play in which history and theatre are in dialogue, on Prendre Dates, which was written to document the facts and to make a record in history. How does theatre keep a record of current events? What are the limits of theatre’s relationship with the real and the current? Taking Stock, where two disciplines -theatre and history- meet, is waiting for its audience to discuss these questions, look at them from different perspectives and discover new meanings.
