Enter Julian Assange's room, call the secret services, dance all night long on the electronic rythms of the women DJ who emerged after the Arabic Springs: from January 11th to the 29th, La Gaîté Lyrique gives a place to speak to our modern heroes, the whistleblowers.
Heroes or ordinary citizens, the whistleblowers reveal data manipulation, drifts of mass surveillance and appropriations of the common good. They bring back to life the archaic dilemma: the tension between free will and obedience, between respecting the law and the right to transgression. They open a breach in our representations of the world. Anchored in the emergency of reality, they explore the fiction of another possible world. This first festival is dedicated to the exceptionnaly contemporary figure of the whistleblowers, seen through art and new technologies.
