Jonathan Capdevielle seizes upon Un crime, written by Georges Bernanos in 1935, and drags it towards the questions that constitute his theatrical universe. He unpicks the particularities of the French terroir, dissects the plain speaking and the traditions of its village dwellers. Through these authentic characters, he examines the human condition with empathy, tenderness and black humour. À nous deux maintenant is a polyphonic thriller interpreted by 5 actors who juggle the roles, offering up a hallucinatory and gloomy vision of Catholicism, haunted by secrets and transgression. When Jonathan Capdevielle meets Georges Bernanos, it is not the director who invites himself into the world of the author, but rather the other way around. The result sits somewhere between reality, dreams and nightmares.
Trained at the École supérieure nationale des arts de la marionnette, Jonathan Capdevielle (1976) has performed in several plays, including stagings by Lotfi Achour and Yves-Noël Genod. He has also been a collaborator of Gisèle Vienne since the early days, and has acted in most of her plays. After creating several events/performances, he began to develop his own work in 2009, which blends autobiographical fiction, accounts and intimate stories, by relying on references from popular culture. He is currently associate artist at the CDN Théâtre d’Orléans.
