François Gremaud

Born in 1975, François Gremaud is a Swiss writer, director, and actor who lives and works in Lausanne. After training as a director at the INSAS in Brussels, he founded in 2005 the 2b company, a production structure for his own creations such as Re (2012) or Conférence de choses (2013) [Conference of things], but also for those of the Gremaud/Gurtner/Bovay collective like Chorale (2013) [Choir] or Western dramedies (2014). He creates unique, poetic, and hilarious worlds to amaze his audience. François Gremaud likes to say that searching for joy is as much a poetic as a political act.
