The scene is set in the heart of the ‘garden city’ of l’Abreuvoir designed by the modernist architect Émile Aillaud—one of those Parisian ‘banlieues’ known as a ‘sensitive neighbourhood. The action begins with the arrival of the artist, hoping to stage an intervention involving the inhabitants, and unfolds over five acts around the construction of a crude bench made of rammed earth. After the successful completion of the construction, a storm devastates the scene. In order to take stock of the drama and explore the contested issue of participation, the artist teams up with Thévenot, sociologist of engagement. Surely, some unsuspected truth can be found amid the debris of the wreckage?
