After studying classical literature, Anne-Laure Liégeois joined the world of theatre by translating and directing a play by Seneca, The Feast of Thyestes, which gave its name to the company she founded in 1994. Wanting to explore new places and to bring together many artists, she created Christian Rullier's Le Fils (The Son) for fifty actors in closed-down industrial spaces; Ça (It), which brought together writers and actors in open-air chambers; and Embouteillage (Traffic), staged in actual forests and along cliffs, which brought together 27 writers and won over the audience of the Festival d'Avignon, watching from their cars... Appointed as director of the Centre dramatique national in Montluçon in 2003, Anne-Laure Liégeois alternates between directing great classics and close collaborations with contemporary writers. She not only creates the scenography and costumes for her shows, but she also works on the music. Since 2011, she has been invited four times to direct the troupe of the Comédie-Française, and has become associated with Le Volcan, in Le Havre.
