Marcel Cremer


Playwright and director Marcel Cremer believed the most interesting thing about an actor was their own life story. And thus, in 1980, in a tiny Belgian town, he founded Agora Theater, which quickly became one of Europe’s leading theatre companies for young audiences. His so-called autobiographical approach consisted of taking actors and designers to unusual places (a wood, a cemetery ...) and inviting them to improvise on various themes. From the individual stories that emerged, he constructed texts of universal poetic appeal. Cremer died in 2009; his artistic legacy includes La femme corbeau (2002), Wanted Hamlet (2008), and Le roi sans royaume (2010).
