Event Description

Christophe Barbier provides a unique perspective on theater and politics. A major voice in French politics for over 30 years, he began his career as a political reporter at Le Point and on Europe 1 before becoming political editor at L’Express in 1996. He was editorial director from 2006 to 2016, and remains a member of the editorial team. He hosted the morning news program on the Canal+ digital news channel I-Télé since 2011, before joining BFM-TV in 2016. 

Barbier has written over a dozen books on politics, including Les Derniers Jours de François MitterrandLa Comédie des Orphelins, and La Guerre de l’Elysée n’aura pas lieu. His book Dictionnaire amoureux du Théâtre captures the world of theater both on and off stage.

Barbier has directed over 60 plays and recently performed the one-man-show Le Tour du Théâtre en 80 minutes at the Théâtre de Poche Montparnasse. Barbier is the director of the Théâtre de l’Archicube, the theater company of his alma mater, the École Normale Supérieure.

Olivier Barrot is a journalist, author, and television personality who plays a prominent role in French cultural life. He hosts the daily literary program « Un livre un jour » on France 3 and TV5 television and directs a series of public discussions with actors of the Comédie Française on the art of their profession. His most recent books are United States; MitteleuropaUn livre un jour, un livre toujoursLa Revue blancheLe Fils perduCiné Club; and L'Ami posthume.
