Avignon's goals 2015! EDGAR WIBEAU : UN GÉNIE MÉCONNU by the Charlie Brasquet Company Theatre Au Bout Là Bas at 7:00 pm.


The project


About us


Nowadays, it is difficult to get known and visible to the public.

To remedy to that, we are going to the off festival of Avignon in 2015.


We will be playing at the theater Au bout là-bas from the 4th to the 25th of July 2015!

This means more than 20 representations!

We would be delighted to share and exchange this moment with you!





Out project


It is an adaptation for the theatre from the novel

Les nouvelles Souffrances du jeune W. d’Ulrich Plenzdorf.


For this project, we wrote the adaptation, built up the staging and we play in it to. This ambitious choice has able us to explore the landmarks of an unexplored theatre.Through our reconstitution, we invite our public, in a subtle way, to discover Edgar’s life. They question themselves, with us, during the representation.


Our way of working is concerned by artistic and human questions which are fundamental for each of us.





In the 70’s, Edgar Wibeau, a 17 years old teen, wanders in the east of Berlin, dressed with his old washed-out jeans. He left his natal town, Mittenberg, hoping to be a painter. He will then fall in love with Charlie, a 20 years old woman, already engaged to Dieter, a soldier.


Edgar’s speech is slowed down because of the investigation of a father he has never known. His father discovers tapes that Edgar used to send to Willi, a childhood friend. On those tapes are recorded extracts of “Souffrances du jeune Werther” from Goethe, last tacks left from Edgar…

Avignon’s festival in 2015

Au bout là bas is a warm and welcoming theatre with 47 seats, managed by Lucien et Francoise ALLOUCH. We will be representing our play in this place, situated in the middle of Avignon, in a calm dead-ended street, neighbour with the theatres Les Halles and Le Verbe Incarné.
