Alice et le Maire
- Language talk: Dutch
“Your job is to work on ideas, to take a step back from day-to-day municipal activities, to think about the future.” This is the position which Alice, a young philosopher from Oxford, finds herself thrust into at Lyon’s city hall and council; a world of fixed habits and customs that she knows nothing about, but with which she will soon become acquainted when she is hired by the mayor of Lyon. After thirty years in politics, the mayor is running out of ideas and feeling an existential emptiness. Alice et le Maire is a dialogue between two opposing personalities who turn their certainties upside down and explore the possibilities and limitations of politics and how these change over time.
The Q&A with Cees Hamelink can unfortunately not take place due to private circumstances.
