Performing Arts


Born 1967 in Paris. After studying visual arts and cinema, Nauzyciel enrolled in the École du Théâtre National de Chaillot. In parallel with acting, he has staged numerous plays ranging from Shakespeare, Molière, Chekhov, and Beckett to contemporary works, and since 2007, heads the Centre Dramatique National Orléans. L'Image (making its Japan premiere at the Triennale) is a reading-dance performance that takes as its text the very short story of the same title by Samuel Beckett. But a few pages in length and containing no punctuation, save a single dot at the end, it spans the last moments of a man’s life as he recalls the memory of a spring day spent with a woman and a dog. L'Image was created in Dublin by the actress Anne Brochet, and was presented amongst other cities in New York by Lou Doillon, and will be recreated in Japan with the young and talented French actress Julie Moulier; danced by Damien Jalet, who appeared in works by Wim Vandekeybus and is known for his close work for over ten years with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui; music by Winter Family.
