ALTER EGO (X) is a European theatre company launched by Julie Crantelle and Théo Majcher in Paris in 2019. In a Europe that is nowadays extremely focused on economic and political treaties, it is now the time to look at the citizens it is composed by. We do believe that arts and culture have a great role to play. Indeed, they are the very essence of connections between nations, of dialogue and of sharing of knowledge. A way to promote the notion of common consciousness. The art needs this diversity and in the current society, it appears essential to create with different nationalities and across borders.
We are acting through the field of theatre. Beyond our artistic practice and our will to bring a sense to the world we are living in, we are also sharing a common expectation: an artwork always remains open to all kind of questions.
Thus, we focus ALTER EGO (X) on three areas: Laboratory, Creation and Transmission. The projects are carried out in Paris and its surburbs and abroad through International artistic cooperations.
WHY ALTER EGO (X) ?
ALTER EGO (X) depicts the uniqueness of an encounter. People who are indisputably tied whether they are far away or geographically close.
The notion of alter ego also takes its roots in the word "others". Our personal identities always want to turn to others and this is the path we are taking in this adventure.
ALTER EGO (X) was born from this desire to create in the diversity in all its forms. Our starting point is always the need to say something within this common space represented by the present day society. It is by drawing on the richness of human-beings that the shape of the alter ego will be well embodied.
