  • In 2013, Olivier Py became the first artist to be appointed director of the Festival d'Avignon since Jean Vilar. A director for the theatre, the opera, and cinema, but also an actor and writer, Olivier Py anchors his work in the preoccupations of his contemporaries in order to open a poetic and political dialogue. Theatre is his culture and instrument: with it, the word becomes action. Olivier Py has translated and directed many of William Shakespeare's plays. In 2019, he directed the inmates of the Avignon-Le Pontet prison in Macbeth, and this year he is creating the dramatic series Hamlet in the imperative! in the garden of the bibliothèque Ceccano.
