Coming up at the Théâtre de Carouge

La Malade Imaginaire Argan, a wealthy widower, takes medicine upon medicine, purgative after purgative, bleedings, leechings, enemas, and every other remedy under the sun to treat the indefinable, undiagnosable, incurable illness that occupies his every waking moment. His new wife, Béline, patiently awaits his demise so she may inherit his fortune. His daughter Angélique wants to marry her lover Cléante, much to the chagrin of Argan, who means to marry her to Thomas Diafoirus, a doctor... With so many competing interests, so many hidden agendas, it’s no wonder Argan has to play dead in order to learn the truth!

Description in French
Ce livre d’entretiens, consacré au metteur en scène et comédien Jean Liermier, célèbre l’histoire de l’une des plus grandes scènes de Suisse, le Théâtre de Carouge, de 1958 à nos jours. Cet ouvrage témoigne des origines et du parcours artistique de son directeur général et de la naissance d’un nouveau lieu de création inauguré au mois de novembre 2021.

Dans cette conversation avec Patrick Ferla, Jean Liermier dit sa rencontre avec le spectacle vivant, sa pratique de metteur en scène, la place qu’occupe le théâtre et l’imaginaire dans notre société. En découvreur intranquille, il s’explique sur son choix d’un répertoire classique dont ses spectacles révèlent la formidable contemporanéité. Des dialogues vivifiants qu’enrichissent une trentaine de Regards, textes originaux de personnalités des mondes politique et culturel : Victoria Chaplin, Guillaume Chenevière, Françoise Courvoisier, Clément Hervieu- Léger, Omar Porras, Yvette Théraulaz, Delphine de Candolle, David Junod, Delphine de Stoutz, François Rochaix, Thierry Apothéloz, Olenka Wodzicki Besson, François Longchamp, Isabelle Chassot, François Jolliet, Brigitte Rosset, Philippe Mentha, Maurice Aufair, Gilles Privat…

Journaliste-producteur à la Radio télévision suisse, Patrick Ferla a créé et animé de nombreuses émissions culturelles et présidé le Prix du public de la RTS.
