Since the early greek tragedy, courtroom spectacles of tragic-comic injustices have become familiar sources of entertainment. Many theatrical performances stage courtroom scenes, (re)present justice, and (re)situate trial in a theatrical or playful context. Staging injustice or unstaging justice in comtemporary theatre were often set to confront the loss of values and the corruption of State institutions by decons-tructing the justice system in order to reconstruct a " faireness " alternative. In fact, justice should not be mixed with rules. Rules are only a forensic system of making justice in a particular context or culture. While justice is a value, a human capacity. And theatre-makers are often pointing out that " legal " doesn't mean " fair ". 'Legal justice is not ideal justice. It is a legally unjust justice', contests playwright Hèlène Cixous who argues that justice (dyke) is 'always out of joint'.

Performing (in)justice in theatre may thus offer possibilities for a new vision of justice as critical thinking and aesthitic strategies of political engagement and acti-vism. Staging crimes and trials provoke the debate on offenses, laws and penaliza-tion. The theatre is a tribunal in which the spectator does not only judge a character but can reflect also about the foundation and functioning of justice such as rights and duties, responsibility, legitimacy,violence, peace, extenuating or aggravating cir-cumstances and punishment.

During the seminar, we will explore how performances of justice have been represented or reenacted in theatre? What performative strategies used by theatre-makers to convince an audience of a specific narrative of (in) justice and what legal, political and social consequences do these plays and performances have? Does per-forming a trial, putting it on a show, pointing out the risky elements in it help to con-vince the target audience of a new sense of justice? Does it help the society, to cor-rect injustices, to restore peace?

The theatre-makers' visions of justice offer an exploration of diverse legal and ethical consciousness among the Arab and Western communities. Those perspec-tives will be analysed through the examination of some plays and performances such as "Rwanda 94, an attempt at symbolic reparation to the dead for the use of the li-ving" by the Belgian group Groupov. The task performance Please Continue (Hamlet) (2011) by Cie Yan Duyvendak. From Arab theatre, an interest will be accorded to "AraBerlin" (2002) by Tunisian theatre-makers: Jalila Baccar and Fadhel Jaibi. The lecture-performance Exercises on Trials (2016) by Cairo-based artists Jasmina Met-waly and Philip Rizk.

Let's investigate Together the contemporary theater makers' role in challenging jus-tice foundations and practices in Arab and Western cultures!

The seminar is hold in English language.
