2013 was the centenary of the birth of Albert Camus, something we marked at Stirling by adding L’Etranger to the works on our second year modules. With this in mind we’re intrigued by the description of an event taking place at the Institut Français in Edinburgh on 20 and 21 March:
“An interdisciplinary visual and oral experience based on L’Etranger read by Albert Camus himself (from a 1954 recording) and mixed live with contemporary electronic music by Belgian DJ Pierre de Mûelenaere. Original images mixed live by the video artists Orchid Bites are simultaneously superimposed over the recitation.”
There’s a brief trailer on the Institut website and details of how to get hold of tickets (£5 for Institut members, £8 for non-members) can also be found there.
Other forthcoming events at the Institut include free screenings of the brilliant documentary La Maison de la radio on 4 and 5 March (a must for all fans of French radio!) and a talk in French on the Third Republic given by Patrick Landri.
