The bare voice of Emmanuelle Laborit

The bare voice of Emmanuelle Laborit

The writer, actress and director tells Johanna Bedeau, about France Culture, how she overcame her deafness.

“No matter how much I screamed, there was something that was inaccessible to me. “Deaf from birth, Emmanuelle Laborit was nicknamed the” Seagull “as a child because she was shouting to be heard.

She has since found other ways to express herself. Writer, actress and director, she tells to Johanna Bedeau in A naked voice, on France Culture. It accurately portrays the disarray felt in adolescence in a silent world, the revolt against the denial of the deaf community and its fight to make theater.

How to find one’s place in a world that language shapes? By the sign language and by the language of the body. Through the theater and the voice of commitment to the benefit of the hearing-impaired community. An enlightening interview, tinged with humor and pretty cries “so that the world of the deaf is no longer the world of silence”.
