Family Affair | Valenciennes
Documentary Theatre

FA Valenciennes_IMG_3938

Family Affair is a participatory project combining documentary and theatre. The combination of poetic approach and fieldwork lets the Italian ZimmerFrei collective and the participants unfold an original narrative emerging from experiences encountered by several families living in the area of Valenciennes. The third episode focuses on fathers and the change of their figure in contemporary society especially in recomposed families. Daily events, expectations, memories and desires are transformed into short stories passing from mouth to mouth, creating a collective narrative within a multimedia performance.

This episode involved as well some professionals working with family groups, such as psychologists, social workers and one anthropologist.
