Description

Hell is other people, Jean-Paul Sartre famously wrote in No Exit. The fantastic tragicomedy Madah-Sartre brings him back from the dead to confront the strange and awful truth of that statement.

Hell is other people, Jean-Paul Sartre famously wrote in No Exit.

James D. Le Sueur Madah-Sartre, Algeria’s own No Exit, was written in 1995, while Toumi was in exile .

It is not an exaggeration to say that Madah-Sartre is one of the most imaginative and provocative plays of our era. In it exiled Algerian playwright Alek Baylee Toumi crosses several unspoken boundaries and, in so doing, places his art and himself at the center of one of today’s most important and violent disputes. Madah-Sartre, Algeria’s own No Exit, was written in 1995, while Toumi was in exile in the United States (where he still resides). What if Sartre and de Beauvoir could see what had become of their once-cherished Algerian cause? What if they could confront the radical Islamists who now terrorize innocents in the name of God?

Hell is other people, Jean-Paul Sartre famously wrote in No Exit  . What if Jean Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir came back to life and went to meet ISIS? Existentialism meets radical Islamists. Very interesting text. I think it shows some of the huge divide, maybe unresolvable divide between the West and the legacies of the imperial traumas they left behind in Africa.

Sartre and De Beauvoir were its Bogart and Bacall, partners in a gloriously modern love affair lived out between jazz club . De Beauvoir and Sartre met in 1929 when they were both studying for the aggregation in philosophy, the elite French graduate degree

Sartre and De Beauvoir were its Bogart and Bacall, partners in a gloriously modern love affair lived out between jazz club, cafe and writing desk, with forays on to the platforms and streets of protest. Despite being indissolubly united and bound by ideas, they remained unmarried and free to engage openly in any number of relationships. De Beauvoir and Sartre met in 1929 when they were both studying for the aggregation in philosophy, the elite French graduate degree. De Beauvoir came second to Sartre's first, though the examiners agreed she was strictly the better philosopher and at the age of 21 the youngest person ever to have sat the exam.

The love story of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre, and their lifelong open relationship

The love story of Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paul Sartre, and their lifelong open relationship. De Beauvoir and Sartre were classmates and competitors at the Sorbonne in 1929, studying for the aggregate in philosophy, a prestigious graduate degree.

“Hell is other people,” Jean-Paul Sartre famously wrote in No Exit. The fantastic tragicomedy Madah-Sartre brings him back from the dead to confront the strange and awful truth of that statement. As the story begins, Sartre and his consort in intellect and love, Simone de Beauvoir, are on their way to the funeral of Tahar Djaout, an Algerian poet and journalist slain in 1993. En route they are kidnapped by Islamic terrorists and ordered to convert . . . or die. Since they are already dead, fearless Sartre gives the terrorists a chance to convince him with reason. What follows is, as James D. Le Sueur writes in his introduction, “one of the most imaginative and provocative plays of our era.” Sartre, one of the greatest thinkers of the twentieth century, finds himself in an absurd yet deadly real debate with armed fanatics about terrorism, religion, intellectuals, democracy, women’s rights, and secularism, trying to bring his opponents back to their senses in an encounter as disturbing as it is compelling.
