(Actes du Théâtre n°64 April 2013)

Actress Sabine Revillet was born in 1974 in Clermont-Ferrand. She studied acting at the Ecole Nationale de St-Etienne, and has worked with Eimuntas Nekrosius, Anatoli Vassiliev, Serge Tranvouez (on plays by Gabily), and Vincent Rafis (on Tentative intime, a project exploring experiences on stage). The rest of her time has been devoted to writing and leading workshops. She was awarded a grant from Beaumarchais-SACD in 2006 for her first work, Pardon, a play about the cruel journey of a naive young woman. The play was selected by the Collectif A mots découverts, and a reading was staged by Jacques David at the Théâtre du Rond-Point in September 2008. A grant from the CNT led to Adèle, a show exposing a woman’s prodigious desires, performed by the actress Candy Trash (presented at the Divan du monde/Nuits blanches, and at the Festival La Genre Humaine at Confluences). She enjoys experimenting with words and working with actors onstage. In 2009 she had a virtual adventure – co-writing L’ with Eli Commins, Joseph Danan and Emmanuel Guez. This ‘‘digital literature experience’’ was initiated by Franck Bauchard, director of the Centre National des Ecritures du Spectacle. La Peau du mille-feuille, a puppet play about blurred identities, was published by Editions Lansman. Sabine Revillet took part in the summer meetings at the Chartreuse de Villeneuve-Lez-Avignon with her play Papa-maman ciment, inspired by a news story about illegal confinement. Justin, a phantasmagorical play commissioned by Julien Rocha, Compagnie Le souffleur de verre, is scheduled to premiere in March 2010 in Clermont-Ferrand. She is interested in theatre that is offbeat, lyrical and unsettling, in mishaps on stage, clashes, things that are messed up, disturbing and deformed, whatever is not quite right, on shaky ground, off target and inefficient. She recently received a CNL production grant to write a family saga recounting the stories of Marianne Céleste Zoé et Séraphine, and a CNT production grant for L’Emission, which she will stage in the near future.
