Pascal Rambert, director from 2007 to 2016
Away from any narrative process, Pascal Rambert tries to understand reality. It attempts to give voice and body, renewing the means and forms of temporary community what a show. Abandoning the usual modes of writing, the stereotypes of the fable or the staging, he designed shows, between performances and installations, attentive to the "reality of transformations."
Deeply imbued with contemporary art and philosophy, his works are 'white' proposals or viewer is invited to "write" on the inside.
Pascal Rambert was first marked by Pina Bausch and Claude Régy. After a stint at the Chaillot school with Antoine Vitez, he alternates writing and staging, and became director of his own parts. He works in the US and Japan, convinced that the hexagonal theater must be enriched by foreign experience. He taught at several US universities and Dramatic Institute in Damascus. He also directed several short films. His shows run in France, the US and Japan. He is director of the Théâtre de Gennevilliers since January 2007.
