What was the set off?
They supplied me this challenge, I stated why not, let’s go. After which it is a part of the journey attempting to promote the tour that is going to observe. It is thrilling.

We may summarize “Au scalpel” in a horrible recreation of cat and mouse between two brothers who hate one another…
That is what I preferred, it is this mise en abyme, we’re misplaced, we do not know the place we’re at any given second. We’re taken hostage by these two brothers, we now not know who’s telling the reality and who’s mendacity. We did a number of earlier readings and I questioned: however is my character mendacity or telling the reality? I needed to persuade myself of what was true and what was false to be able to totally take pleasure in it. I lastly discovered my reality.

And which is the extra evil of the 2?
In keeping with my logic, since it’s my character that began, I’ll say that it’s him (explosion of laughter).

Does the Avignon Pageant imply one thing to you?
I visited the Palace of the Popes, I slapped myself, it’s a magnificence, this metropolis is classy. There’s an emulation virtually in every single place, a form of magic. I really feel like I am taking a visit again in time. Even in comparison with what I am doing right here. I, who began with the café-théâtre, had already realized to sound individuals out. The theater isn’t my favourite place at first, however I prefer it for now.

May you might have come to Avignon with the band you shaped with Jean Dujardin in “Nous c Nous”, within the 90’s?
I might have liked to, however we did little or no collectively on stage, we received on TV in a short time. We performed on the Sentier des halles two or 3 times, it is a disgrace by the way in which, we might have had a good time. We had nice success fairly rapidly with this band.

And play at In (the official pageant)?
So, I do not know, I did not even give it some thought (laughs)! I’ve by no means seen a present on the In, I would go see one on the Cour d’honneur.

Are you going to see different reveals within the Off?
I’ll see my mates’ performs. I noticed Cyril Garnier in astronauts, the man is fascinating on this one on one. I’ll see my mates on the one-man-shows, however I additionally wish to see one thing else, I am curious. Till now I’ve gone to the cinema (laughs) on this magnificent place that’s Utopia. I noticed the Quentin Dupieux film, Unbelievable however trueI wish to see the doc on Morricone, Enyo.

How is your typical day going?
Within the morning I stand up fairly early, I’m going as much as the Doms’ backyard the place we now have a stupendous view, the dawn. I stroll the streets when there should not many individuals however it’s tough to search out moments with out anybody! The opposite time I did the Palace of the Popes. Then I do my program, I’ve a salad for lunch, if you wish to know every thing (smiles), after which I stroll, I’m going to see a play or a film, relying on what they provide me as a result of I do know few individuals. right here.

Does the Avignon viewers appear particular to you?
The wonderful factor is that we now have very totally different individuals. The opening night time was fairly uneven, yesterday was a bit laborious, and as we speak I discovered them fairly reactive. There’s pressure on this play, it isn’t a thigh-slapping comedy. In the present day they had been superb. I used to be apprehensive in regards to the crowd on Saturday night time!

It is Saturday, nevertheless it’s 13:00!
It’s true !

And that point, exactly, to play?
I prefer it, at the very least it is achieved! In any other case, the day is wasted, you can not totally chill out. I manage my day in keeping with the work.

do you tow?
I’ve a trick: as quickly as somebody tows me, I take away them! Up to now we have saved ourselves the difficulty. We’ve a tractor, Nadine, which is nice and managed to carry 20 individuals as we speak. I even have the benefit of being a bit of recognized. They are saying to me: ah, are you there? So I pull out a field!

Is there a job you dream of?
What excites me is to alter roles, so I haven’t got an concept in thoughts. I’ve a buddy who tells me: I see you nicely in Don Juan, I don’t challenge myself within the classics, it isn’t my primary tradition. We studied the classics at college, however for me it was synonymous with boredom. Molière was happier, however I did not perceive every thing. Within the second we’re not prepared, in any case, I used to be not prepared! And as we speak I rediscovered all that. If I really feel want from a director or an writer, that may talk the will to me. However I do not challenge on Richard III !

your initiatives?
For now I’m writing. A collection that’s the adaptation of my penultimate program. elated the place I inform the story of a boy who spends his life laughing. It is like a fairy story by which I performed all of the characters. On this collection, if I handle to edit it, I might do some however not all.

And your animated movie challenge?
It is going to be tailored from one in all my sketches. It’s a household the place every thing goes nicely, with a small baby. The dad and mom argue a bit, there’s an issue within the household and he does not know what is going on on. They reside within the south, in Marseille. There’s a conflict, the dad and mom go as much as the outskirts of Paris and, importantly, the baby had a child canine ​​and so they give this canine, a horrible drama for a 9-year-old boy. We arrived within the suburbs, the ocean, the household, the identical relationship between the dad and mom is now not there, and the animal is now not there. The dad and mom separate, and earlier than leaving the daddy offers a guinea pig to his son after which disappears. The one component that connects him with the daddy is that this little animal and this little animal will play a really sturdy position in his life.
