Not many theatre directors can boast of having been at the helm of their troupe for over 50 years and still be constantly creating and renewing their art without ever losing track of contemporaneity? Ariane Mnouchkine is that athlete and artist who, since the creation of the avant-garde stage ensemble, Théâtre du Soleil created in May 1964, has always placed a high value on artistic excellence and defended her ideal of sharing with actors and audience alike. From the Cartoucherie, a theater deep in the heart of the Vincennes woods near Paris, to New-York through Taiwan, the influence of her commitment has never ceased to spread, thanks to an ever growing public in France and abroad.
