Guillaume Vincent returns to Seuls en Scène (Rendez-vous Gare de l’Est – 2013) with a staged reading featuring Emilie Incerti-Formentini who will read, in French, L’histoire de l’agression à l’arme blanche, a short story by Joyce Carol Oates from her collection of short stories Terres amères (The Story of the Stabbing/Sourland).

Guillaume Vincent and Emilie Incerti-Formentini met at L’École du TNS in 1999, and have been collaborating ever since. Among many other projects, they created together the critically-acclaimed Rendez-vous Gare de l’Est. Last season Incerti-Formentini starred in Vincent’s Songes et Métamorphoses.

Guillaume Vincent (Born 1977) has emerged as one of France’s most innovative new directors. He directs classical and contemporary texts, as well as his own texts and operas. His last creation, Songes et Métamorphoses, toured throughout France in 2016-2017.



The Class of 1970 Theater is located in Whitman College on the University campus. To access the theater on foot, enter Whitman College from Elm Drive. From the Guggenheim Gallery, follow the hallway to your right and use the ramp to enter Whitman Theater.
