Pascal Rambert in Residence at Princeton University

This spring, Princeton University welcomes the celebrated French author and director Pascal Rambert as a Belknap Fellow in the Council of the Humanities and visiting lecturer in French and Italian.

With Florent Masse, senior lecturer in the Department of French and Italian and director of L’Avant-Scène, the French theater workshop,  Rambert will run several workshops and direct students with a final production at the end of the semester. The course offers students the chance to experiment with the complete theater-making process as they immerse themselves in the writing, acting and directing processes, actively creating and devising their work under the guidance of Rambert.

On April 24 in McCormick Hall Room 106, the Department of French and Italian and the Council of the Humanities  will host “A Conversation with Pascal Rambert.” Moderated by Masse, it will present Pascal Rambert’s recent, current and future projects with his company Structure Production, partners overseas, the Avignon Festival,  and Princeton. 

Rambert's next production will premiere at the Avignon Festival this upcoming July.

About Pascal Rambert

Rambert heads his own production company, structure production, and is an associate artist of Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord in Paris, El Pavón Teatro Kamikaze in Madrid and Théâtre National de Strasbourg.

From 2007 to 2016, Rambert served as artistic director of T2G-Théâtre de Gennevilliers, which he transformed into a national dramatic center for contemporary creation.

In 2016, Rambert received the Theater Prize from Académie Française for his entire body of work.

Rambert is the author of more than 20 plays; his international hit “Clôture de l’amour” was translated into 23 languages. This summer, he will be one of the lead guest-artists at the 73rd Avignon Festival, where he will stage a new play Architecture.

Rambert’s theater plays and choreographies are now produced by structure production, and are supported by the French Ministry of Culture. His plays are staged in Europe, North America, Asia, Russia, South America and the Middle East.

This is Rambert’s fourth visit at Princeton. He came as a guest-artist at Seuls en Scène, Princeton’s French Theater Festival. In 2015, he directed “De mes propres mains” for the festival; in 2016 “Clôture de l’amour”; and in 2017, both “Le début de l’A.” and “L’art du théâtre.
