Rien ne s’oppose à la nuite – Fragments – Theatre

“My mother is dead, but I am handling a living material”. Multi-award winning best-sellier Rien ne s’oppose à la nuit paints a portrait of a mother, and through her that of a family in the shadow of tragedy, a family that is unique yet universal. Keeping an almost visceral connection with the book, author Delphine de Vigan has always refused to allow it to be adapted for the screen or stage. Actor Elsa Lepoivre, through her passion for the book, her enthusiasm, and her subtle grasp of its meaning, finally convinced the writer to let her lend her voice and portray her alone on the stage. On uesday, March 12 at 20:00 at the Théâtre Princesse Grace.

Mental Load: A Mother’s Invisible Burden – Philosophy Workshop

The phrase “mental load” was coined by sociologists in the 1980s to describe the cognitive aspect of physical labour. The concept was quickly seized on by feminists to highlight the unrecognised burden that falls on women caring for their families. Mental load is now understood to refer to the psychological, cognitive, and emotional implications of looking after others, particularly young children, and the stress placed on women, who bear an unequal share of responsibility for care. Workshop organised by the association Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco. On Wednesday, March 13 at 17:30 at the Centre Hospitalier Princesse Grace. Discover more here.

Life as a Couple – Lecture

If the meaning of life is a number, it certainly isn’t “one”. There may be single-cell organisms, bacteria, yeast, plankton, and other protozoa… But even they need something else, namely an environment in which to exist. Every organic molecule, in addition to having a lifespan and sources of energy, is built on multiplicity, alterity, combinations of elements, carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, water… Naturally, such is the essence of life on Earth, the life of living things, but tells us nothing about the way in which humans choose to live that life. Lecture organised by the association Les Rencontres Philosophiques de Monaco. On Thursday, March 14 at 19:00 at the Théâtre Princesse Grace. Discover more here.
