Since 2016, Margaux Eskenazi has devoted herself to the “Écrire en pays dominé” triptych and its creations. In doing so, she has developed a new way of constructing and creating shows that explore creolised French identities. Using stories and improvisations, she creates shows in which reality and poetry interact and interweave. A long, collective process, this work includes an investigation and research stage in which each team member is involved. Now Margaux Eskenazi is opening a new research cycle. The first stage consists of working with the 12 actors from La Belle Troupe. The show marks the culmination of La Belle Troupe des Amandiers’ three-year professionalisation programme.
Margaux Eskenazi was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieure d’Art Dramatique in 2013 to continue her training in directing and went on to complete a Master II in Theatre Studies at Paris III (Sorbonne-Nouvelle).
She began directing in 2007, when she founded Compagnie Nova. She has directed Quartett by Heiner Müller, Hernani by Victor Hugo and Richard III by William Shakespeare, a retranslation and free adaptation of the English playwright’s work. Since 2016, she has been developing a diptych entitled Écrire en pays dominé, devoted to colonial amnesia and the poetics of decolonisation, with Nous sommes de ceux qui disent non à l’ombre, traversée de la négritude à la créolité, and Et le cœur fume encore, plongée dans les mémoires de la guerre d’Algérie dans la France d’aujourd’hui. Her work is firmly rooted in Seine-Saint-Denis, where Compagnie Nova organises a number of local initiatives in connection with her creations. Margaux Eskenazi also worked on the reading panel at the Théâtre du Rond-Point. Since 2018 she has been an associate artist of the Collectif 12 in Mantes-la-Jolie and since September 2019 has worked in close collaboration with the Théâtre Gérard Philipe, CDN in Saint-Denis. Since January 2020, she has been a guest artist with Jean Bellorini at the TNP-Villeurbanne.
