  • Author / Creator

  • At the crossroad of themes and cultures, Wajdi Mouawad's writing combines an array of ‎artistic genres ranging from the ancient myth to most contemporary techniques of performance. ‎Among the writing of this playwright, dramaturge, stage director and actor, we have chosen to ‎study four plays grouped under the title Le Sang des Promesses, that includes Littoral, ‎Incendies, Forêts and Ciels in addition to the play Seuls that constitutes a "crossroad" in which ‎intersects different forms of writing and staging.‎ The purpose of this study is to explore questions of identity and identification, trauma, ‎witnessing, violence, and alterity in addition to techniques of polyphony, modes of expression, ‎various mediums as they come together in the work of Mouawad at the intersection of the ‎textual and the performative. In these play texts studied, Mouawad questions space, time, ‎narrative and the body while highlighting the complex intersection of the lived, the mediated, ‎the vocal, the gestural and the embodied in performance. Methodologically, the work uses a ‎deleuzian and guattarian approach in particular concepts of "rhizome" with its principles ‎‎(connection and heterogenity, multiplicity, asignifying rupture, cartography and ‎decalcomania), in addition to the concepts of line of flight, deterritorialization and body ‎without organs, as they allow us to create bridges between various disciplines, perspectives ‎and techniques while rejecting all predetermined structures and favoring the unpredictable and ‎the non-hierarchical. ‎
