École Nomade, Oxford 2015

Monday, September 14, 2015 - 9:00am to Friday, September 25, 2015 - 5:00pm
Ariane Mnouchkine
Théâtre du Soleil
North Wall Arts Centre, Oxford

The APGRD along with the Maison Francaise d’Oxford, the Oxford Playhouse, Pegasus Theatre, and the Institut Français, are excited to announce that Ariane Mnouchkine, Europe’s foremost experimental theatre director, and five members of the radical collective Théâtre du Soleil, are bringing their École Nomade to Oxford, at the invitation of Oxford University and the Maison Francaise d’Oxford. The sessions of the École Nomade, which will take place in English, and will run from the 14th to 25th September, are not drama classes. They constitute moments of practical reflection, involving improvisation, masks, music, dance, and movement, in which Mnouchkine and her troupe seek to set out, explain, and clarify their methods, and their collective way of working.

On Friday 2 October, at 5:00pm, Ariane Mnouchkine will be in conversation with the APGRD's Oliver Taplin, discussing her fascinating career and creative practices at the Oxford Playhouse.
