"Elvire Jouvet 40" at the Pavé
"Elvire Jouvet 40 is a founding show in my life as an actor, theater director and above all a drama teacher. Without doubt one of the most beautiful, one of the strongest that I have lived. Raising myself at the time of its creation, I see myself sitting every evening in a corner of the theater where the play was being performed in Toulouse to cry because the emotion was so strong. Listening to the magnificent actors carrying Jouvet's voice, I felt that this was where my life was taking shape "explains Françis Azéma, who will propose, at the Théâtre du Pavé with his Company Les vagabonds," Elvire Jouvet 40 ". A play written from the theater lessons given in 1940 by Louis Jouvet to his students at the Conservatoire playing Elvire in the Dom Juan de Molière From January 24 to February 8 at the Pavé theater, (Rue Maran).
