An evening with Ludovic Lagarde (Paris) and writer Olivier Cadiot (Paris), on the occasion of the French production of Cadiot’s Colonel Zoo (Colonel des Zouaves) directed by Ludovic Lagarde and of its American production, A.W.O.L, directed by Marion Schoevaert. Both productions are presented at the 59E59 Theater. Reading by New York actor Steven Ratazzi with music by and with French musician Benoît Delbecq.

Olivier Cadiot was born in Paris in 1956. His first book of poetry, l’Art poétic’ was published by Editions P.O.L in 1988. Cadiot wrote his first play, Soeurs et frères, for Ludovic Lagarde in 1993 and then collaborated with director Ludovic Lagarde on the adaptation of his novels: Le Colonel des Zouaves (1998), Retour définitif et durable de l’être aimé, and Fairy queen (2004), produced at the Théâtre de la Colline, Paris.

Ludovic Lagarde was born in Paris in 1962. He directed first at the Comédie de Reims and at the Théâtre Granit de Belfort. In 1993, he commissioned Cadiot to write a play, Soeurs et frères, first produced at the Théâtre Granit de Belfort. Since 1997, Lagarde has adapted and directed Cadiot’s latest works: Le Colonel des Zouaves (1997), Retour définitif et durable de l’être aimé (2002) and Fairy queen.

Benoît Delbecq (born in 1966) is a Paris-based French pianist and keyboardist who has created his own music using ideas and techniques from contemporary classical (Cage, Ligeti, Nancarrow), jazz, Pygmy polyphony, and other sources.
