Enjoy a public lecture presenting new scenes from « Les Femmes d’en-haut » ("The Women Above") performed by Théâtre du Rêve of Atlanta , the only French-speaking theatre company in the US at the Alliance Theatre.

This is a wonderful opportunity to see a play in production. Guest director Olivier Kemeid will work with four actors from Chicago, Quebec and Théâtre du Rêve. French comedians will also perform.

A reception to meet the artists follows at the Alliance Française in Midtown after the lecture.

Olivier Kemeid was born in Montreal and is an accomplished author, an actor and stage director. Artistic assistant at the Théâtre du Trident in Quebec for one year, and after that scriptwriter since 2002 for Téléfiction (Montreal), stage co-director and creative writer of the international Cabaret Libre of Montreal for the 2003-2004 season, Olivier Kemeid is also one of the founding members of the Compagnie des "Trois Tristes Tigres". Since 2007, he is the artistic director of the Théâtre Espace Libre.

Olivier Kemed will also participate in a training workshop for French teachers and students on ways to incorporate live theater into French and drama classes during French Immersion Day on Saturday, March 24.

    It was very fun although we were a little disconcerted that it was not in French or mostly so. I did enjoy the play and would return to see the end when it is finished. The reception that followed was lovely and we were able to meet several lovely women who were affiliated with the AF.

    Merveilleux! The reading of TdR’s Celles d’en haut was a unique and original theatrical happening. It was especially exciting to feel the energy of this dynamic group of actors from around the world come together to participate in the creation of a new play and to experience it as a “work in progress.” Bravo for your part in bringing such stimulating francophone theatre to ATL.

    I enjoyed the reading. Didn’t really know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised by the performance’s caliber. The script was funny, and the actors committed to themselves to the role.
    Thank you for the invitation.
