Here's a show unlike anything you've seen before.


33 tours et quelques secondes (33 turns and a few seconds), presented at the Théâtre du Rond-Point, is a deeply moving and powerful show by Lina Majdalanie and Lebanese director Rabih Mroué. Inspired by the true story of Diyaa Yamout, a human rights activist who committed suicide in 2017, this performance examines the complex issues of suicide, individual freedom and collective responsibility.


Through monologues, dialogues and video projections, Rabih Mroué and Lina Majdalanie portray Yamout’s family, friends and colleagues and retrace the events leading up to his suicide, while questioning the deeper motivations behind the act.


33 tours et quelques secondes invites us to reflect on individual freedom in a society that imposes countless norms and expectations. Diyaa Yamout's suicide raises questions about collective responsibility in the face of individual suffering, and about the limits of outside intervention despite all the means of communication at our disposal.


This poignant and emotional show is sure to leave a lasting impression!

Théâtre du Rond-Point

If you ever want to feel the pulse of the French theatre scene, the Théâtre du Rond-Point is the place to be! But which roundabout or "rond-point" is it exactly? It's one of the most famous roundabouts in Paris, located near the Champs-Elysées, smaller than the famous Etoile roundabout under the Arc de Triomphe. Since 1981, it has attracted a host of directors from all over the world and a host of people with a passion for theatre. A major venue for contemporary creation since 1991, the Rond-Point does not programme "what people like, but what they don't yet know they like", according to Jean-Michel Ribes, the theatre's former director. Since 2023, Laurence de Magalhaes and Stéphane Ricordel have taken over the reins of this theatre, which is still rooted in contemporary creation and focuses on living authors.
