Abstract: This doctoral thesis in performing arts looks into scenic writings of human disasters in contemporary theatre. It examines dynamics underlying the representation of barbarism within spectacular forms imprinted with a visual dimension. Split into two parts – a first one, critical and a second one, practical -, the work is firstly structured around a corpus composed of three shows : Kamp of the Hotel Modern group, Rwanda 94 of Groupov and Rouge décanté by Guy Cassiers. Through the observation of the works in the light of the complexity and by analysing it with a systemic approach, the study attempts to reveal the moves – aesthetic, perceptive and thematic – that drive these heterogeneous writings. The second part of the thesis deals with a process of experimentation led in the scenic space. The latter, dedicated to outline an original artistic creation, questions occidental memories on the Tutsi genocide in Rwanda. The practical experience echoes back to several issues raised by the critical investigation and proposes another form of reflection, directly led on the stage. Keywords : Contemporary theatre, Research-creation, Complexity, Genocide, Images, Europe.
