The event is over
The direction of Olivier Py - baroque spirit, a campaigner for public theatre , charismatic figure on the French scene - in Soulier de satin [The satin shoe] and his own plays, La Servante [The maid] and Illusions comiques [Comic illusions], has left a lasting impression on audiences. Influenced by Claudel, Giraudoux and Gernet among others, his lyrical and flamboyant theatre is imbued with theology, philosophy and metaphysics.
