is close
to finding poetry and beauty in life.
It opened my eyes.»

Comédie de Genève

Public Masterclass: Theatre and cinema, cross-over games

In collaboration with HEAD – Geneva, the Comédie de Genéve Theatre offered an exceptional public masterclass on acting on 18 May 2019: one and the same scene from Tennessee Williams’ «Glass Menagerie» was worked on by both, me as film director and with theatre director Alexandre Doublet. The panel discussion that followed reflected on different approaches in film and on stage. The cameraman and ZHdK professor Pierre Mennel filmed the project and recorded his conversation with us.
