The ball that we must carry, the reason why we live The first text of The Talker Clown triptych, called The Clown of the Swamps , was a poetic evocation of Jean Lambert-wild’s clown, his...

Over a month, we invite you to witness in real-time the creative process of “Waiting for Godot” by Samuel Beckett, directed by Jean Lambert-wild, Lorenzo Malaguerra and Marcel Bozonnet...

Jean Lambert-wild, co-author of this logbook with Lorenzo Malaguerra, is one of the three artists directing the show. He also plays the part of Lucky.

From the figure of the onion to the figure of the clown Rehearsals continue for Samuel Beckett’s “Waiting for Godot”, directed by Jean Lambert-wild (Lucky), Lorenzo Malaguerra and...

Jean Lambert-wild, Lorenzo Malaguerra and Marcel Bozonnet are always exploring. Little by little, the characters of Waiting for Godot give away their secrets. What follow are a few notes taken by the...

Twelve days away from opening night, we have to pay attention to everything: the set, the stage design, the actors’ intent in performance… Below are the latest news from the rehearsals...

“Rehearsing a show also means this: to like coincidences, laugh at our weaknesses, play at being a chemist, hope for alchemy and provoke involuntary catastrophes”. Below is an antidote to...

“We are now a few days away from opening night. Our acting has become more intense, and so has our tiredness! It is an insidious exhaustion that knocks us off our axis and corrupts our emotions...

“On opening night, the work we did within the cocoon of our team is shown to an audience. This first performance is the ultimate aim we have been waiting for and fearing, it must confirm...

Attempts in the distance It is now time to experiment with ideas and to follow the performers’ intuitions. They will have to perform and occupy the space: a vast pond on the edge of a wood, in...

First day of rehearsals: clearing away the deadwood While Jean-Luc Therminarias and Nourel Boucherk are busy installing a console and loudspeakers by the pond in the summer heat, we start a first...

The origins of the origins Why did we gather, on Monday 12 June 2017, in the magnificent park of Pôle Cirque de Nexon, the beating heart of circus arts hidden in the green Limousin countryside?...

Richard’s carousel (1/3) There is a third character which we haven’t talked about much until now. It is however a character that is very tangible and always present: the set. The set we...

Repetition and variation (3/3) Like great explorers, we now equip the stage like we would equip a ship for a long journey. We have maps on board, the whole crew is here, we have to prepare and...

Repetition and variation (2/3) Of all the tentacles that make up our Richard III, it is the text, newly translated by Gerald Garutti, that the actors Elodie Bordas and Jean Lambert-wild must turn...

Repetition and variation (1/3) Rehearsals are a ritual. Actors rehearse, like swimmers who, every day, repeat the same gestures to make them more precise, to ensure they can be performed without...

Ghosts and spectres (3/3) “Stay away from actors. Their skin is a magnifying glass against which ghosts rub their insides, leaving behind a cloud of wild rose and musk that embalms your eyes...

Ghosts and spectres (2/3) The discovery of witchcraft and the first demonology studies profoundly marked the golden age of Elizabethan theatre. At the time, putting ghosts on stage was a serious...

The National Theater Company of Korea (NTCK) invited us to work on a production of Roberto Zucco , by Bernard-Marie Koltès, with their theatre company. When I say we, I mean Jean Lambert-wild and...

The NTCK’s resident company (1/2) We have been planning our work on Roberto Zucco for over a year. In July 2015, Jean Lambert-wild and Lorenzo Malaguerra travelled to Seoul to identify what was...

The NTCK’s resident company (2/2) We have spoken about how pleasurable it has been to be working with the NTCK’s resident company. Below is a short review of the actresses and actors who...

Who are you, Roberto Zucco? This is a never-ending, circular question. Who is he, the only character in the play to have a name? That name that, for him, is an obsession. That name he can’t say...

Impossible love in Roberto Zucco At the heart of Roberto Zucco is the idea of an impossible love, and its corollary for performance: the fight for love. Every character of the play, in varying...

Where cataclysms occur, by Romain Fohr The set now stands on the Myeongdong Theater’s stage. In the middle of the stage, technicians have installed the set of Roberto Zucco which will first be...

The adventure that the making of Richard III – Loyaulté me lie constitutes started in a mental health hospital. Indeed, what more fitting than to work on this play in such a particular context...

If Richard III – Loyaulté me lie started in a psychiatric institution, it actually sprung from a presage: a historical “coincidence” that acquired a very particular importance for...

The least we can say is that the first images we have seen, of Jean Lambert-wild incarnating Richard III suggest it will be an atypical representation. Traditionally, we imagine Richard III as a...

The central figure in Richard III is King Richard. More so than in Shakespeare’s later works, the focus of the play is on the eponymous protagonist. The many other characters are the cogs in...

King Edward played by a mannequin that works like a cuckoo clock, operated by pulleys; Queen Elizabeth’s sons represented by moving mouths on a wheel with strobe light; the animated faces of...

Theatre is shared solitude. It is an art form where a community of performers sets itself a challenge: to meet a community of spectators. In this challenge, it becomes an enticing fancy to achieve...

Our adaptation acquired another dimension when we decided that Jean Lambert-wild’s Richard III would be escorted by a woman: Élodie Bordas. When we discovered Richard III’s story, the...

Translating Richard III (1/3) To translate is to make decisions. This is the case with any form of writing, of course, but here, we must also follow several complex concurring requirements. They are...

Translating Richard III (2/3) Shakespare embodies the flesh of the world – he savours its flavours, embraces its fervour, digests its matter. Concrete, sensual, his words soar up, they know no...

Translating Richard III (3/3) Shakespeare’s words conjure up things for us to hear, to dream, to laugh about – they also, perhaps more importantly, allow us to see. What is essentially at...

Who is the director of the show? Our answer to this frequently asked question: ‘no one’ is. The theatre director, this tutelary figure of the stage, at times a dictator and at times a...

Richard’s melancholy (1/2) According to a text attributed to Aristotle – Men of Genius and Melancholy – melancholy was the sign of creative and illustrious people. Described as an...

Richard’s melancholy (2/2) A rose thorn is pricking Richard’s heart, and it makes him mad with anger. Where does this thorn come from? Is it caused by anything, or is it without an object...

Emblem and motto (1/2) For the real Richard III, King of England and Lord of Ireland, recently buried in Leicester, “Loyaulté me lie” is more than just a motto. In those feudal times,...

Spectres et fantômes (2/3) L'âge d'or du théâtre élisabéthain est profondément marqué par la découverte de la sorcellerie, et des premières études de démonologie. A cette époque, la...

Répétition et variation (1/3) La répétition est un rituel. A l’image du nageur qui répète inlassablement les mêmes gestes afin de toujours mieux les préciser, afin de ne plus avoir à y penser,...
