"I have written an additional chapter for the English-language edition of this work, which covers the productions and activities of the the Théâtre du Soleil through 2019.../... In this changing world in which we live, on both sides of the Atlantic, across the English Channel, or elsewhere, the Théâtre du Soleil opens the way for thinking about the world differently and resisting forces of oppression, for living together in our various cultures and languages with compassion and empathy – and for creating a new theatrical language. The Soleil suggests ways to approach the sources of great theatrical traditions in order to create an art for today. It shows us how with courage and invention the concept of cultural transference can illumine collective practice."
