A dramatist with a degree in philosophy as well as a filmmaker and director, Christiane Jatahy grew up in Rio. Halfway between the stage and the image, her shows are like machines which explore the relationship between the actor and the audience, the border between fiction and documentary. She created Julia (adapted from Strindberg) in 2011, What if they went to Moscow?, a sequel to Chekhov's Three Sisters, in 2014, and The Walking Forest (based on Shakespeare's Macbeth) in 2015. In 2017, she adapted Jean Renoir's The Rules of the Game at the Comédie-Française. The diptych Our Odyssey began in 2018 with Ithaca. The Lingering Now - Our Odyssey II is her first creation at the Festival d'Avignon.
