Le mystère de la tonalité locale

Thursday 19 May 2016 18:00-19:30

What comprises a country’s identity? Why do we gladly return to it, whether we hail from it or experience it in passing? Why must it evolve in order to stay alive?

Seeing a country as an opening, a range of possibilities, but not as a fortress, and visiting it as that range of possibilities – such was the momentum of Le Dépaysement -Voyages en France, published in 2011. It recounts Jean-Christophe Bailly’s travels through France, some aspects of which he will present here.

Jean-Christophe Bailly is a writer, a poet and a playwright. His book Le Dépaysement -Voyages en France received the Décembre literary award in 2011.
