Jaco Van Dormael, écrire le chaos by Jaco van Dormael( Book )
2 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 3 libraries worldwide
Cette conversation avec Jaco Van Dormael se place directement sous le signe du questionnement.0Se de?finissant, a? la suite de Luigi Pirandello, comme "Un, personne et cent mille", Jaco Van Dormael s?interroge autant qu?il ne re?pond aux questions sur cet e?trange e?tat de la cre?ation qui consiste a? accepter, ordonner et finalement e?crire le chaos du monde.0Comment faire affleurer le sens ? qui sommes-nous ? comment sommes-nous au monde ? quels sont les choix qui dictent nos vies ? Autant de questions qui traversent aussi bien le contenu de l?œuvre de Jaco Van Dormael que son processus de cre?ation.0Ce dialogue en est le reflet ; nous sommes sans cesse en pre?sence d?une pense?e en mouvement et l?on sent, intimement, comment la pense?e de Jaco Van Dormael le traverse.0S?inte?resser a? l?e?criture de sce?nario est assez rare. Le lecteur de?couvrira ici comment, ve?ritable e?criture a? part entie?re, elle induit une cre?ation multi-forme.0C?est aussi cela, le propos de la collection Orbe : ouvrir les portes aux diffe?rentes formes et genres de l?e?criture
