In Le Voyage dans l’Est we return to the scene of the crime, to the very place where a father first forced his daughter into an incestuous relationship. It describes the battlefield the conscience becomes. The stage is where we listen to this urge, between life and death, confusion and light, in a place of exposure, courage and life, and risk – the sort of risk Stanislas Nordey enjoys taking. Nordey is not afraid to wrestle with works that deal with human catastrophes and whose literature searches for a ray of light, however faint.
A theatre and opera director, actor and teacher, Stanislas Nordey has been creating, performing and devising shows since 1991. He mainly directs works by contemporary authors, including Gabily, Karge, Lagarce, Mouawad, Crimp, Handke, Pasolini, Falk Richter, NDiaye, and Galea.
As an actor, he has collaborated with directors including C. Letailleur, A. Théron, W. Mouawad, P. Rambert, A. Vassiliev, É. Vigner and F. Richter, and sometimes performs in his own shows, including Pasolini’s Affabulazione (2015) and Qui a tué mon père by Édouard Louis (2019). Throughout his career, he has collaborated with several theatres (Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers, École et Théâtre national de Bretagne, La Colline-théâtre national) and in 2013 with the Festival d’Avignon.
From 1998 to 2001, he co-directed the Théâtre Gérard Philipe, CDN de Saint-Denis, with Valérie Lang. In September 2014, he was appointed director of the Théâtre National de Strasbourg and its École, where he works extensively with 23 associate artists – authors, actors and directors – to reach audiences who are usually far removed from the theatre, in a spirit of artistic parity. His lifelong interest in contemporary writing is mirrored in the project he has devised for the TNS.
In 2020, he reunited with Éric Vigner in the role of Mithridates in Racine’s play of the same name. In 2021, he staged texts by two collaborating authors: Berlin mon garçon by Marie NDiaye and Au Bord by Claudine Galea. In 2022, he created Ce qu’il faut dire by Marie Ndiaye at the TNS.
