COMPAGNIE LES FUSAINS
Pierre Byland Mareike Schnitker
The Compagnie Les Fusains was founded in March, 1981, in the “Cité des Fusains” in Montmartre, Paris. It marked the will of several friends from different countries to extend and expand their work together, creating an international meeting and workplace.
Our company doesn’t represent a definitive style. The theatrical forms that we pursue are very close to those often called comic, derisive, absurd, and grotesque. We love humorous stories because they glide quickly towards poetry.
The first requirement for the work is to have no separation between the actors, the authors, and the directors. In this way, the actors confront both the solitude of work and the life of the
company, always striving towards an original, company-developed creation.
