David Bobée

A director and scenographer, David Bobée mixes theatre with other techniques and disciplines—video, light, dance, circus, music, and cinema—and works with actors, dancers, or acrobats, professionals or amateurs, some of them handicapped. He has been the director of the Centre dramatique national de Normandie-Rouen, the first interdisciplinary CDN, since 2013. A member of the collective Décoloniser les Arts and of the Collège de la diversité within the Ministry of Culture, David Bobée defends, through both his practice and his public stance, an intersectional approach to the fight against discrimination, and the setting up of positive actions against discrimination in culture.
