The company les choses ont leurs secrets
is supported by Scène Nationale Évreux-Louviers, Conseil Départemental de l’Eure, Région Normandie, DRAC Normandie, La Criée in Marseille and Compagnie Jérôme Deschamps.
Les Choses Ont Leurs Secrets was created in Normandy in 2013 by Sylvain Levitte, keen to work on Shakespeare and how his plays relate to contemporary society. The team is made up of actors trained at the Conservatoire de Paris (CNSAD), and the first production was an adaptation of King Lear, with two young actors, the second Twelfth Night, with nine women (eight actresses and a pianist) and the third The Winter’s Tale, with six actors.
This work on Shakespeare is combined with work on Michael Chekhov (Anton’s nephew), for whom acting is a method that must be practiced regularly to achieve ease and grace. Acting is central to our artistic approach. It is about embodying somebody else in confidence, a question of empathy and receptiveness to the world around us.
Our artistic approach is focused on meaning and the movement of thought and the body, and music and dance revolve constantly around us.
