After Maybe (2008) and Without a Doubt (2013), Macbeth Quand Même completes a trilogy on uncertainty and irresolution, born from the deliberate confusion between outer worlds, our life with others, and inner worlds, intimate desires and fears.

 

French director Jean-Paul Delore is back in South Africa to commence rehearsals for a new creation, a comedy where disorder will be personified by five characters: Gerard, Lindiwe, Jeff, Nick and Toni; five foreign actors forced to play Shakespeare's tragedy in French, in order to escape anonymity, boredom and expulsion.

 

More about Jean-Paul Delore

Stage director, author and actor under Bruno Boëglin, Yves Charreton and Robert Gironès as well as in his own shows, Jean-Paul Delore is the artistic director of Lyon-based company LZD Lézard Dramatique. He is the author of Départ (1982), Encore (1992), Dommages (1995), Suite (1997), Divagations régionales (1998), Absences de problèmes (2000).

 

He has staged various works by E. Delore (Départ, Artic Bay, À L'Ouest), E. Joannes (La forêt des Zuckers), as well as M. Couto, M. Bey-Durif, and many others.
Moving across genres (at one stage his work led him to meet and create with unusual "groups", e.g. sportsmen, youth with problems and high school students), his approach progressively brought him to work with contemporary musicians and composers, resulting in the creation of an original style of music theatre, as with Les Hommes (1999) and Mélodies 6 (2001).

 

In 1996, he met Dieudonné Niangouna, with whom he works regularly.
Since 2002, Jean-Paul has been directing the travelling theatre and music creation laboratory Carnets Sud/Nord, in Central and Southern Africa, Brazil and France.
