Projections posthumanistes: pour une réflexion ouverte

Dominique Leclerc + Patrice Charbonneau-Brunelle

Following the success of the documentary show Post Humains, Dominique Leclerc and Patrice Charbonneau-Brunelle pursue their research for their next creation. In the context of the OFFTA, starting from the principle that human beings are in constant transformation, the company proposes a platform where citizens of all horizons are called to imagine new possibilities for the future of our species.

Dominique Leclerc and Patrice Charbonneau-Brunelle (Posthumains) investigate the impacts, on the individual and society, of NBIC technologies (nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology and cognitive science) currently in development. Their projects explore the documentary form in theatre, including autofiction, performance and the audience’s involvement in the issues addressed in this production.
