Irène Bonnaud

A translator and playwright, Irène Bonnaud created her first professional show in 2002 for a festival dedicated to Heiner Müller. Her shows have allowed audiences to rediscover texts—for instance with the French creations of Heiner Müller's Tractor or John Osborne's The Entertainer, the meeting of Marcel Pagnol and the troupe of the Comédie-Française for Fanny, or her modern rereading of Aeschylus's The Suppliants. Her last show, Guerre des paysages (Landscape War), was based on testimonies from the Greek civil war.
