Thanks to Foucault News for alerting us to the work of the theatre group Le collectif F71. The ensemble have been exploring Foucault’s thought since 2004. In November 2005 their first work, 71 Foucault, was performed at the Theatre Studio in Alfortville on the outskirts of Paris. Since then they have produced a series of collaborations, looking particularly at Foucault’s militant period, including La Prison in 2006.
Interestingly, their present project is Notre Corps Utopique which explores the text of the radio talk given by Foucault on France-Culture in 1966. This talk formed a pair with Les Hétérotopies, Foucault’s first account of the spaces of heterotopia.
The texts of the talks are available in a small book:
Foucault, M. (2010)  ‘Les Corp Utopique, Les Hétérotopies’, with introduction by D. Defert. Clamercy: Éditions Lignes.
