THE INTERVIEW / L'ENTRETIEN by Thomas Boutoux and Guillaume Leblon

From Paraguay Press in Paris

The Interview
is a theatrical play for two actors in six scenes, written in collaboration between the artist Guillaume Leblon and the critic Thomas Boutoux. It stages the ongoing conversation between an artist and a critic that begins when the former commissions a text from the latter. Their dialog soon develops into a dramatic series of misunderstandings, agreements and discord about writing, art-making and publishing, but also about Egyptian sepulture, drinking in the afternoon, artistic paranoia, the uses of time, the artist as Average Joe or institutional critique, as The Interview follows their desperate attempt to write a new Tristram Shandy.
