A Conversation with Noëlle Renaude, interviewed by Sabine Bossan | A face to face
Actes du Théâtre met with Noëlle Renaude in late June when éditions Théâtrales published Sans carte sans boussole sans équipement, a collection including eight of her plays, and Noëlle Renaude, Atlas alphabétique d'un nouveau monde, edited and compiled by Michel Corvin.

Noëlle Renaude « Noëlle Renaude [...] Everything is put together – even what doesn't go together; it's mismatched, and the things that don't go together are put together anyway, and I think that's what characterizes my writing. The stage is the fundamental basis for my writing and my work. It's made for the stage, which is both the source and destination. But it's all channelled through books, and that's something I really believe in. I'd even go as far as to say the book is enough in itself. The play is all there in the book. »
Noëlle Renaude, Atlas alphabétique d'un nouveau monde « NR [...] Michel Corvin has wanted to do this book about me for about ten years; but it's actually better that he's done it now because I'm further along in my writing. Being a perfectionist, he directed the project masterfully, bringing in highly diverse, cutting-edge participants. And he's got a wicked sense of humor combined with steely precision. My publisher, who has followed my work for 20 years and fulfilled all my layout needs, has done groundbreaking work. I'm extremely proud of the book. [...] »

« How about a really funny comedy to get back to work with a smile on your face? ... »

« JACQUES [...] That's when Odile saw the ad for a special sale of friends at a superstore in the Paris area. »
Francis Joffo Les Battantes | Francis Joffo
« Finally a play that's so hilarious from start to finish that you don't have time to catch your breath. [...] The playwright clearly denounces the situation of battered women and their weakness/victimhood. He paints a sardonic portrait of men, giving them quite a thrashing and a fine lesson in good manners. Truly delightful/entertaining »

« The striking thing in Camille and Eric's work, whether it's the text or the music, is the energy it gives off. It isn't forced or over-the-top. It's direct, real and simple. [...] »
