François de Brauer / Louis Arène / Joséphine Serre

In this enthralling one-man show, François de Brauer creates twenty captivating characters using minimal props and costumes. We follow the story of Remi Goutard, who from his birth, develops a hatred for the arts and holds a persistent grudge against artists and performers. When appointed as a Congressman at the National Assembly, he strives to get rid of all cultural events, and artists who wish to reintegrate into society. In this show, Brauer also introduces us to other intriguing personalities such as Remi’s schizophrenic father and an Argentinian psychoanalyst. Developed over the past five years, the show is now playing regularly in Paris, and Brauer’s artistry at creating multiple characters and transforming subtly from one to another has been hailed by critics as a tour de force.

François de Brauer studied at Cours Florent and continued his education at Le Conservatoire National Supérieur d’Art Dramatique. Notable credits include Richard II with Guillaume Severac-Schmitz, Le Malade imaginaire de Molière with Michel Didym, Les Trois Soeurs with Volodia Serre, and La Ravissante Ronde with Thomas Bouvet. Bauer has also assistant directed on La Fleur à la bouche by Pirandello at La Comédie Française with Louis Arène.
