    LE VISITEUR, Eric-Emmanuel Schmitt

    "La philosophie prΓ©tend expliquer le monde, le théÒtre le reprΓ©senter. MΓͺlant les deux, j'essaie de rΓ©flΓ©chir dramatiquement la condition humaine, d'y dΓ©poser l'intimitΓ© de mes interrogations, d'y exprimer mon dΓ©sarroi comme mon espΓ©rance, avec l'humour et la lΓ©gΓ¨retΓ© qui tiennent aux paradoxes de notre destinΓ©e. Le succΓ¨s rend humble: ce que je croyais Γͺtre mon théÒtre intime s'est rΓ©vΓ©lΓ© correspondre aux questions de beaucoup de mes contemporains et Γ  leur profond dΓ©sir de rΓ©enchanter la vie." Eric-Emmanuel Shmitt.Β 

    Philosophy claims to explain the world, theatre to represent it. Mixing the two, I try to reflect dramatically on the human condition, to place there the intimacy of my questions, to express my dismay as well as my hope with the humour and lightness that arise from the paradoxes of our destiny. Success is humbling: what I believed to be my intimate theatre turned out to correspond to the questions of many of my contemporaries and their deep desire to re-enchant life.
