Albert Camus’s post-war novel The Plague captured a society gripped by disease and grappling with the contradictions of widespread fear, death and uncertainty. What do Camus’s piercing insights into human behaviour in the face of crisis mean to today’s own plague-ridden world? In this webinar, Chan Tai-yin (Hong Kong) and Wang Chong (Beijing) reflect on their respective interpretations on Neil Bartlett (UK)’s adaptation of Camus’s classic absurdist text and consider how their own interpretations have been infected by contemporary realities.
