Portrait

  • In 2013, Olivier Py became the first artist to be appointed director of the Festival d'Avignon since Jean Vilar. A director for the theatre, the opera, and cinema, but also an actor and poet, Olivier Py anchors his work in his contemporaries' preoccupations, in order to open up a poetic and political dialogue about the life of the individual as part of a community. Theatre is his culture and his instrument: with him, words become actions, without losing sight of the fact that this gesture—a poem—could one day be the basis of new democratic forms.
