After graduating from the ENMAD in Noisiel, Tiphaine Raffier joined the École du Nord in 2006. As an actress, she worked with Bruno Buffoli, Laurent Hatat, Gilles Defacque, Frank Castorf, and Julien Gosselin (including in Atomised and 2666, both presented at the Festival d'Avignon). In 2012, commissioned by the Théâtre du Nord, she wrote, directed, and performed her first play, La Chanson (The Song), which was then turned into a medium-length film and presented at the Directors' Fortnight in Cannes in 2018. The response of Men is her fourth creation. Her plays are published by La Fontaine.
