Architecture

Text, conception, installation Pascal Rambert

With Emmanuelle Béart, Audrey Bonnet, Anne Brochet, Marie-Sophie Ferdane, Arthur Nauzyciel, Stanislas Nordey, Denis Podalydès member of the Comédie-Française alternating with Pascal Rénéric, Laurent Poitrenaux, Jacques Weber

For Emmanuelle Béart, for Audrey Bonnet, for Anne Brochet, for Marie-Sophie Ferdane, for Arthur Nauzyciel, for Stanislas Nordey, for Laurent Poitrenaux, for Denis Podalydès, for Pascal Rénéric, for Jacques Weber : Pascal Rambert wrote Architecture for them. For each and for all of them, together... 
Architecture is a brutal family history that resembles a shipwreck. In the aftermath of World War One and at the gates of Anschluss, in a time of hope and battle, each member of this family, brilliant as they may be – composer, architect, philosopher, writer, scientist, actress, painter – still believes in giving over one's life to the pursuit of thought and beauty. But if they, the most talented of the talented, were unable to stop the bloodshed, how will we fare if the blood turns up anew?

Opening within the Avignon Festival – 2019 July 4th
