Season 2017-2018

Pierre Pradinas - "The Occupation"
This dazzling portrait of a forty-year-old woman trough an essential moment of her love life is a quite exceptional text in in Annie Ermaux’s work. A short novel of 2002, fast moving, it quickly makes us feel empathy with an amazingly lifelike character and immediately I wanted to stage it: So this woman is separating from the man who, for five years, was sharing her life…

Nicolas Saelens - "The Promethean Suites - Suite n° 1, water"
The Promethean Suites are a collection of tracks, prints, resonances of the living world. The plan is organized around the presence/absence of a Prometheus witnessing what men have done with sacrifice. From a daily life mythology (news in brief, anecdotes, jokes, newsflashs) we imagine parables, forms that link together the account and thought of experience and the poetical imagination...

Dyssia Loubatière - "Jacob, Jacob"
Initially, there is a photo: four young men posing proudly in front of a replica of the Normandie, in Algiers. From these faces and from the memories of her grandmother, Valérie Zenatti will reinvent and restore for the memory a life she hasn’t known, the life of Jacob, born in Constantine, killed at the age of 19 on the Alsatian front, who happened to be her great-uncle...

Dan Jemmett - "I am invisible" (Based on William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream)
I think somehow I always wanted to direct Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream’, or at least some sort of version of the play. And so I have waited patiently over the years for the right inspiration to come along, an inspiration that might show me the way towards a starting point or perhaps open a door for me into a moon-lit, enchanted forest at midnight...
