Presentation

  • A snowy morning, a war-torn landscape, the parquet of a ballroom... Bedrooms, hallways, streets, gardens, trains... Heavy coats, light dresses, aprons... Frenchmen, Spaniards, Moroccans, Algerians, Syrians, Hungarians... Endless lists of men and women, of places and situations that François Cervantes asked the fourteen young actors of the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique to make, based on their personal history. Thanks to a specific work on body memory, each of them summoned the people who made their lives, blood relations and poetic families alike. All come back from their century, be it the 16th or the 20th... and the stage is their multitude. “The job of the actor is to offer hospitality,” the director likes to say, defending the necessity and the responsibility of his trade: to always give stories the place that is rightfully theirs, to fulfill that urgent need we have to talk to one another. Claire, Anton, and them is the mischievous title François Cervantes gave to this initiatory play, which is also an homage to a school whose role is to teach, to understand, to welcome, even maybe to take care of its students. A nod to Chekhov, who was also a doctor...

     

    François Cervantes
    After training as an engineer, François Cervantes studied theatre at Espace Acteur in Paris, then in Montréal with Eugène Lyon. He started writing for the theatre in 1981, and founded the company L'entreprise in 1986, trying as its artistic director to create a dramatic language that would allow him to talk about the world of today. His international tours led to exchanges with many artists and to research into the relationship between tradition and creation which deeply influenced his company's shows. It led him at once to go back to the origins of theatre, to clowns and masks, and to a kind of contemporary writing constantly grappling with the world, looking for the place where real and imaginary meet. François Cervantes has worked with numerous artists (Didier Mouturat, Catherine Germain) and companies (Cirque Plume, Compagnie de l'Oiseau mouche)... In 2004, his company settled in the Fallow in Marseille to begin a new adventure as a troupe working with a repertoire and building a long and regular relationship with its audience. François Cervantes also leads training workshops in France and abroad. He is a member of the Bande d'artistes du Merlan in Marseille, and works as a writer with the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique.

     

    Conservatoire National Supérieur d'Art Dramatique
    The Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique is a higher education institution that offers a three-year programme open to diverse artistic and aesthetic disciplines. Claire Lasne Darcueil, its director since 2014, refocused the Conservatoire's teachings on a progressive educational project that invites the students to explore the fundamentals of acting (interpretation, dance, masks, clown, dramaturgy) and to focus on the text. Second-year classes focus more on performance while taking different forms (master classes, exchanges with other schools abroad), while third-year students work with professional directors on creations over seven-week cycles. The 71st edition of the Festival d'Avignon will present shows performed by third-year students directed by François Cervantes, Yann-Joël Collin, and Clément Hervieu-Léger and, for the first time, the work of a student, selected by a jury of professionals: Juliet, the Beginning, written by Grégoire Aubin and directed by Marceau Deschamps-Ségura.
