Pascale Henry

Ce qui n’a pas de nom

From 26 to 29 march

Création  Théâtre



The supermarket cashier is dead, like a dislocated puppet on the floor. She has joined all the women crushed in silence, forgotten on the shelf labeled “miscellaneous”. Suddenly, she rises along the walls, takes to the air and goes to join Cassandra, Iphigeni and Medea: women in the service of very masculine wars. But they’re rebelling, the old dames! Fully intending not to let men tell their stories. With 3 actresses, an actor and the magnificent acrobat Melissa Von Vépy, Pascale Henry raises questions about the female body in a world that often relegates it to the rank of a consumer item.

Pascale Henry
Before she started directing then writing, Pascale Henry worked as an actress for several years while also taking part in varous musical adventures. In 1989 she founded the company Les voisins du dessous. Every time she directs is a chance to open the door to reality and see what’s going on behind her. Her unique expertise was built up over years with the support and loyalty of theaters, institutions and individuals who care about her work. Like her artistic career, these partnerships are part of the diversity of the French theatrical network. She took part in the CNAC in Châlons-en-Champagne two years in a row.
