Macha Makeïeff

A writer, plastic artist, and director of La Criée, Centre dramatique national de Marseille, Macha Makeïeff loves to explore the pleasure of the eyes as much as that of words and bodies. At the theatre and the opera, and in museums, she creates sets and costumes, and acts as director. Lewis Carroll was the ideal author to venture into the pleasure brought by the contradictions of language and to explore dreams and the supernatural. During the Festival d'Avignon, Macha Makeïeff will present, at the Maison Jean Vilar, Spoilsport, Curious Collections and Disquieting Things, an echo to the creation of Lewis versus Alice.
