A HUNTER KNOWING HUNTING

A HUNTER KNOWING HUNTING HUNT WITHOUT HIS DOG

WEDNESDAY 19 APRIL 2017, AT 19H30

CONFERENCE PROPOSED BY THE REVIEW Billebaude

By immersing ourselves in the old hunting treatises of the Gallica collection of the National Library of France, in particular in Philosophical letters on the intelligence and perfectibility of animals from philosopher and hunter Charles Georges Leroy, we will explore how we delegated to the domesticated wolf, some 35 years ago, the tracking activity essential to our survival. Impossible with our human sense of smell, writes Leroy, to access the "relation and ideas which their subtle noses give to the wolf and the dog. always exercised ”. With the help of the Standing Monkey Company and tracking stories, we will try to approach it.

Evening organized in partnership with the BnF, as part of the “Gallica Meetings”
With the Standing Monkey Company:
Jade Duviquet, actress and director, and Cyril Casmèze, zoomorphic actor.
