This special one-night-only performance showcases Pascal Greggory — muse, collaborator, and partner to the great French director Patrice Chéreau — as he guides the audience through the personal writings and boundless creativity of one of the world’s great theatrical minds.
Poignant and illuminating, this production was created by Greggory with Chéreau’s longtime colleagues: Anne-Louise Trividic, a beloved and respected scriptwriter, Dominique Bruguière, his former lighting engineer, and Thierry Thieu Niang, who also worked on several of his creations.
“Patrice Chéreau is a part of my life,” writes Pascal Greggory. “He brought me seriousness, made me learn the effort of working, opened the doors of intelligence, and the secret worlds of the great creators to me. … I would like this reading to be both intimate and universal. From letters that he wrote to me (we wrote a lot of letters) to his texts on his stage direction, his theatrical and cinematic thoughts. That is what I want to the audience to discover.”
