In a discussion led by Marianne Badrichani, director of the play Je t’aime moi non plus, Clare Finburgh Delijani, Professor of European Theatre at Goldsmiths University, will discuss the profound impact of "Sidi Molière" - (Sir Molière) as he's called in the Maghreb - on theatre in North Africa and the Middle East. She asks us to consider whether his theatre truly is of global appeal, or if we must reassess the limits of universality when it comes to art.

This talk will be preceded by a performance of Molière : Je t'aime moi non plus at 6pm
