Avignon for Life, the title rings out like a declaration of love and it is one. That of the author and director Pascal Rambert made in Avignon and at its Festival. “I wrote this text on trains, at airports, in stations, on planes. When you can finally be quiet. […] And daydream a little. Dreaming a little about what you love. Here, Avignon and its Festival. I don’t know why I wanted to write a kind of love letter to Avignon and its Festival. Probably because the conditions of beauty and sorrow of the human condition, which are represented, are held for three weeks in this place.” It is Stanislas Nordey who will lend his voice to this luminous ode to the theatre.
