Ariane Mnouchkine, the founder and director of the Théâtre du Soleil, has been continuously producing masterpieces with historical and political themes over many decades. Referring to traditional performances of both the East and the West, she is a theatre pioneer whose unique theatrical organisation eschews hierarchical order.

Ariane is the 2019 Kyoto Prize Laureate for Arts and Philosophy. Join her for this free online event as part of the Kyoto Prize at Oxford 2021, hosted by the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford. The event features a mixture of live and recorded material, including a stream of Ariane's lecture from the Kyoto Prize ceremony in November 2019. This is followed by a live exclusive Q&A, with the opportunity for attendees to ask questions.

Panel discussion
A panel discussion featuring the 2019 Laureates also takes place as part of this year’s Kyoto Prize at Oxford – find out more and register.

About the Kyoto Prize
The Kyoto Prize is an international award, organised by the Inamori Foundation, to honour those who have contributed significantly to the scientific, cultural, and spiritual betterment of humankind. Each year the prize is awarded in three categories: Advanced Technology, Basic Sciences, and Arts and Philosophy. The awards are held annually in November, in Kyoto, Japan. The Laureates travel to Oxford the following May for the Kyoto Prize at Oxford hosted by the Blavatnik School of Government at the University of Oxford. Due to the postponement of last year's event in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the Blavatnik School is hosting the 2019 Laureates.

Book Tickets

The event takes place online via Zoom. Find out more and register via the webpage.

The lecture and Q&A will also be livestreamed and archived on the Blavatnik School of Government YouTube channel.
