POUR ILLUSTRER LE PAPIER DE DANIEL ARONSSOHN : "A ANGERS, LE BOOM DU RECYCLAGE PANSE LES PLAIES DES DELOCALISATIONS". Des réfrigérateurs hors d'usage sont entreposés avant leur recyclage le 02 juin 2008 au centre de stockage et de traitement de l'entreprise Véolia environnement d'Angers. Inaugurée en mai 2008, l'usine de recyclage flambant neuve de Veolia Propreté, qui s'étend sur 5 hectares, monte en puissance avec l'obligation de recyclage des déchets électroniques, imposée en France depuis l'automne 2006 pour respecter une directive européenne.

Climate change is on the agenda. What storms are preparing above us, and within us ?

What makes the glaciers rumble if not global warming? Why are world leaders going to meet in Paris? It’s for this reason that David Lescot has created the character of a writer asked by a newspaper to give his point of view of the situation. He doesn’t know anything about it so he decides to understand as much as possible.

David Lescot has created a “theatre inquiry” in the style of an intimate documentary, driven by his curiosity, his laser insight, and his humour, all of which are a part of him. But he also probes our sensibilities, our emotions, our lives, to atmospheric phenomena. Because of this, the piece is surrounded by raging elements – actors, dancers, musicians, and acrobats, all ready to create lightning and an art of catastrophes, rainfall and clear spells.

In partnership with France Inter.
