A multitalented artist, Sébastien Ricard divides his time between acting, singing and political activism. On stage, he has given brilliant performances of demanding roles in several plays directed by Brigitte Haentjens, his loyal artistic colleague since 2007. Their next creation is devoted to the bewitching mystery of the words of the Austro-Hungarian poet Georg Trakl and his anthology Rêve et folie (“Dream and Delirium”). Sébastien describes the work with passion.

“That’s what poetry does: it brings reality into sharp focus, it reminds us how unique, how extraordinary existence is.”

—Sébastien Ricard
