For almost fifteen years, Pierre Gendronneau has worked with artists as a producer to help them find their audience. With his experience as production manager (Scène nationale de Sénart), administrator (independent structures and companies), production director (Centre dramatique national de Montreuil), and most recently as deputy director to Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota at the Paris Autumn Festival, Pierre Gendronneau is intimately familiar with all the aspects of production and of the dissemination of artistic works in France and abroad. Thanks to his work developing artistic activities at the local level, but also on the questions of artistic patronage and international cooperation, he has acquired a cross-disciplinary expertise in the guidance of direction projects. Familiar with the Festival d’Avignon after his work as executive producer on Patrick Pineau’s Suicidé, which opened the 65th edition in 2011 in the Carrière de Boulbon, Pierre Gendronneau now joins the staff of the Festival as deputy director, starting on 9 February 2023.
