Story: House by Amos Gitaï
In House, Amos Gitaï tells the tale of one West Jerusalem residence by shedding light on the secrets and tensions that its occupants have faced for a quarter of a century. Through fragmented autobiographical accounts, he draws the history of a territory and a conflict with powerful sincerity. Within the titular house, the characters present points of view and experiences that vary from individual to individual, setting them apart from one another, despite their unity in geography. House constitutes a microcosm, a territory, an attempt to discuss the present and future whilst paying mind to the past. A show that is indescribably moving, gripping, and will most certainly surprise you.
La Colline National Theatre
History and Fun Facts about La Colline National Theatre
La Colline is one of the six national theatres with the Comédie-Française, the Odéon theatre, the Chaillot National Theatre, the Opéra-Comique National Theatre, and the Strasbourg National Theatre. It owes a lot to the work of Guy Rétoré who had directed the Théâtre de l'Est Parisian, ancestor of the La Colline theatre. It is under the impetus of its various directors (Jorge Lavelli, Alain Françon, Stéphane Braunschweig) that the theatre today presents plays by living French or foreign authors with an emphasis on avant-garde compositions. In 2016, Wajdi Mouawad became director of La Colline and focused his work on four main points: youth, territory, creation, and diversity. The architecture of the building (an all-glass facade) is a metaphor for the commitment to opening theatre up to the neighborhood and meeting with all audiences.
