Sandra Iché

Wagons Libres


English / 

In 2000, Sandra Iché wrote a version of the history of “L’Orient-Express”, a Francophone magazine in Beirut during the 90s. Ten years later, she interviewed the former contributors of the magazine once again. The dancer and historian explores the possibilities of fictionalisation by setting the interviews in the year 2030. Her play “Wagons Libres” uses choreography to enrich the current discussion about the documentary.
