Alliance française du Bengale


At Alliance française du Bengale
In the framework of the 
French program at Kolkata Book Fair

Trimukhi Platform‘s concern for questioning the contemporary ways of fabricating and enjoying arts works has taken a double shape: the organisation of a night-long festival in Borotalpada village and the publication of a bilingual journal in Kolkata. In this context, on 31st January 2018, 7 pm, at Alliance Française du Bengale as part of the French programme at Kolkata Book fair, Nicolas Idier (Book office, Institut Français in India) and Jean-Frédéric Chevallier (Trimukhi Platform) invite philosopher Barbara Cassin (France), photographer Élodie Guignard (France), anthropologist Marc Hatzfeld (France), sound artist André Eric Létourneau (Canada) and dancer Ikue Nakagawa (Japan) to share their thought after their experience in Borotalpada village for Night of Theatre • La Nuit des idées and discuss about the dynamics at the heart of Trimukhi Platform French-Indian publication Fabrique de l’art • Fabricate (Fabric of) Art.

To enrich the evening, photographies taken by Élodie Guignard in Borotalpada village will be projected during the discussions and, after an introduction by Masayuki Taga (Consul General of Japan in Kolkata), Ikue Nakagawa (Japan) will perform the solo dance she created few days before in Borotalpada village for Night of Theatre n°10 • La Nuit des idées. Last but not least, to stimulate the production of thought, wine will be offered by the General Consulate of France in Kolkata.
