CATCH­ING THE THEATRE BUG

Friday - - Up Close And Personal -

As a child with an imag­i­nary world, I played in my great aunt’s at­tic where an al­cove looked a lot like a stage – I’d po­si­tion dolls and stuffed an­i­mals in ‘scenes’. When I moved back to Paris as a teenager in the 1980s, I took theatre as an in­ter­na­tional bac­calau­re­ate course and my teacher – now late men­tor – helped me dis­cover the magic of theatre. When he took the class to see a Peter Brook pro­duc­tion, I was in awe and I have not strayed far away from theatre since.
