After training as a plastic artist, Céline Schaeffer created her first dramatic installation, inspired by the work of Georges Perec. As an assistant director, she worked with Claude Buchvald, then starting in 1999 with Valère Novarina, in particular on L'Acte inconnu (The Unknown Act), created for the Festival d'Avignon in 2007. In 2012, for the Sujets à Vif of the Festival, she directed Stanislas Roquette in Valère Novarina's L'Inquiétude (Anxiety). Today, she continues her work at the intersection of theatre, language, and painting.
