French philosopher and historian Michel Foucault (1926–1984) is one of the most influential and controversial thinkers of the 20th-century.

Artist Fanny de Chaillé employs theater to restage one of Foucault’s most famous lectures, L’Ordre du discours (The Order of Discourse). She at once re-imagines this historical moment, which was never recorded, and continues Foucault’s investigation into the power inherent in words.

In her return to Crossing the Line Festival, de Chaillé presents this performative experiment within a college auditorium and simultaneously within the context of contemporary American politics.
