A KEDGE Alumna becomes a director

A 2014 KEDGE graduate, Camille Jouannest presents "Le Moche" at the Festival d’Avignon OFF, which she herself directed.

Camille’s passion for comedy is nothing new. While she was still a student at KEDGE Business School, she was already doing a succession of internships in film companies, (distribution, operations, and production).

"I had dream, which I had buried a little, to do theatre, but business studies gave me a security that I preferred. At 24, I felt mature enough to go fully into theatre, so I enrolled in a school in Montreuil, le Laboratoire de Formation au Théâtre Physique (the Training Laboratory at the Physical Theatre). I graduated in 2018 with the desire to be an actress and a director."

Camille's first production is "Le Moche", a black comedy that denounces the excesses of the contemporary capitalist world. Conceived by Marius von Mayenburg, the piece has the honour of being on the programme at the Festival d’Avignon OFF 2019 and will be played from 5 to 28 July at 4:15 pm.

"In hindsight, KEDGE gave me a lot of tools that I use today in stage production," said Camille. "Because it's not just about creating a room, thinking about the scenography and costumes ... It's also about finding funding, finding targeted distribution channels, getting in touch with live performance professionals (theatre programmers, journalists, producers ...). KEDGE has been a big help in all this because I'm not afraid to lead a team (the actors) and lead them to reach a goal: perform a play on stage! Today, I can put these skills towards creation - an author and a team of actors."

Synopsis:

Le Moche is a dark and offbeat comedy that takes us into a chilling comic universe where laughter becomes malevolent. The life of Lette, a brilliant engineer, descends into hell the day his boss tells him that not he, but his assistant, will present his new invention in conference. 

This dark farce describes a reality devastated by the absurdity of an alienating capitalist system where profitability and efficiency have become sacred. The character of Lette, very Kafkaesque, plunges into an infernal machine that leads to an irreversible loss of identity. This Kafkaesque anxiety is that of a world that has lost its soul. A world that puts the conscience to sleep, indoctrinates it to engulf it.
