A series of events created and staged by Mériam Korichi
Mériam Korichi is a philosopher and a theatre stage director. She was a Visiting Fellow at NYU Philosophy Department during 2015 spring semester, to research on the topic “Philosophy after Art”. She studied philosophy at the Sorbonne, at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris and at Harvard as a Visiting Fellow. She has several books published by Gallimard including Letters on Evil. A Correspondence between Spinoza and Blyenberg, commentaries on The Outsider and The Plague by Albert Camus, Notions of Aesthetics, Notions of Ethics, and a biography of Andy Warhol, translated in Brazilian Portuguese and soon in Chinese. She publishes in 2016 A Treatise of Good Sentiments. She writes for the contemporary art gallery Eva Hober in Paris. Among her opera and theatre productions, she has worked as a dramaturge and stage director collaborator on the staging of the Précieuses ridicules by Molière, the Grande Magia by Eduardo de Filippo and The Tragedy of Hamlet at the Comédie-Française (revival in June 2015). She translated into French and adapted for the stage The Comedy of Errors and The King Richard III by Shakespeare for the theatre Bouffes du Nord in Paris (translation published by L’Arche). Intending to challenge the frontiers of philosophy, theatre and contemporary art, she created in Paris in 2010 the concept and format of all-night philosophy events and has staged it since in London (My Night with Philosophers, 2012 & 2013), in Berlin (Die Nacht der Philosophie, 2014), in New York (A Night of Philosophy in NYC, 2015), in Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, invited by the Helsinki festival, and at UNESCO Paris headquarters (Nov. 18th, 2016).
These events have been made possible by the generous support of various partners and producers: academic institutions, cultural institutions, art institutions and private sponsors.
