In 2013, la Maison Française of NYU welcomed Didier Eribon for a discussion of Returning to Reims (Retour à Reims) on the occasion of its publication in English. We now call your attention to the Schaubuhne Berlin theatrical production of the book. Returning to Reims is based on a memoir by French sociologist Didier Eribon, stars Nina Hoss, and is directed by Thomas Ostermeier. Returning to Reims is a timely and courageous show that drives to the heart of some of our most pressing social – political dilemmas.
On February 15, following the 8 pm. performance, there will be a talk back with Nina Hoss; Christian Martin, Max Weber Chair and Professor of European and Mediterranean Studies at NYU; and Edouard Louis, best-selling French writer and author of The End of Eddy (as well as a friend of Didier Eribon).
