                    Even though Dick Cheney isn’t the only one responsible for the stain of torture on the United States, he’s the most, shall we say, colorful? If you think the awfulness of Bush-era torture is behind us, think again. Thanks to the just-released Senate torture report, we now know of all kinds of new and awful ways the CIA and Bush Administration screwed up the hunt for Al Qaeda and disgraced this nation.

                    • THE FALL OF FUKUYAMA (Part 1)

                      The Fall of Fukuyama is an opera-video (libretto & video by CHTO, music by Grégoire Hetzel) inspired by the work of the American composer John Adams; in particular Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer. It was produced by Radio France and Toledo Art Forms in co-production with INA (Institut national de l’audiovisuel). The world premiere took place in Paris in March 2013 at the Salle Pleyel, with Kevin Greenlaw, Jennifer Larmore, Tom Randle, Isabelle Cals, Aedes vocal ensemble and the Philharmonic Orchestra of Radio France. The opera examines the relationship between humans and History. It takes place simultaneously before, after, and during the attacks of September 11, 2001: that is, between the dream of eternal peace and the return to war, between the memory of the 20th century and the general fiction of the 21st. In several languages, the travelers follow History as it unfolds in the distance on the plasma screens they wander in front of in airports throughout the world. Between fear and madness, they reflect upon the first years of the 21st century, years of war during which the real took on the form of total fiction. The title character in The Fall of Fukuyama is a “potential Fukuyama” who oscillates from a moment of despair to a wild new prophecy; he is an intellectual figure turned pop icon linked to the “grand narrative” of the end of the 20th century and the beginning of the 21st.
