Thomas Lebrun’s They saw nothing broaches the tragedy of Hiroshima, site of the first atomic bombing. The title of the choreography echoes a line from the film Hiroshima mon amour by Alain Resnais and Marguerite Duras, “you saw nothing in Hiroshima”.

Through the workshop we will explore certain aspects of the choreography created by Thomas Lebrun in relationship to musical, visual or textual sources: the testimonies of survivors and the sounds of today’s city that overlay the understated traces of the dramatic event, the film by Alain Resnais, the texts by Marguerite Duras, the music by Toshiba Sukegawa, and Iri and Toshi Maruki’s stage panels. Sources that enable us to connect with the tragedy and endeavor – between tribute and angst – mutual questioning in the face of the difficulty of remembrance.
