A room in the city from the Comedy of Valence
A room in the city is a romantic encounter in a non-theatrical space, texts (French and foreign authors), actors, and the audience. Initiated in 2011 at the first festival de théâtre Ambivalence(s) (theater festival of Ambivalences) in France, the project has since evolved and is composed of a repertoire of room theater. An experience to discover or rediscover. Theater that questions the profound place of the audience and the actor. A room in the city is a theatrical innovation presented for the first time in China, and to be accessible to everyone, it will be presented in three languages. Marie Nimier & Sheng Keyi just wrote two new texts for the Chinese premiere.

The night just before the forest : bursts
A lone man on stage telling his troubles, prompted by alcohol and loneliness. The text is repeated, varied, amplified, distorted, jerky in rhythm, rendering an extraordinary power and flexibility of dialogue with oneself. La nuit juste avant les forêts exposes the man to his own questions, which, when shared with others remain misunderstood. French actor Cyril Dubreuil, performs Bernard-Marie Koltès' play in Chinese. The actor's performance, expressing himself in the local language, adds a beautiful aspect of introspection that echos the feelings any foreigner may have when immersed in a culture that isn't their own.
