ALAN T - LA BIENNALE
11 & 12 October 2022
Pierre Jodlowski / Frank Witzel
Presented by Odyssud, ThéâtredelaCité, Opéra national du Capitole and Vent des Signes
A music theater project based on the life of Alan Turing for 1 female singer, 1actor, 5 musicians and audiovisual apparatus His was a paradoxical life, in which critical trajectories both scientific and social were to collide, to violent effect. Turing was an unsung hero of the Second World War: father of artificial intelligence, a mathematical genius and yet ultimately a casualty of the puritanical England of his time, as a result of his self-confessed homosexuality. Alan Turing ended his life marginalized and excluded from society, a recluse living in a one-bedroom apartment where he died at the age of 42 in circumstances yet to be fully explained.
