Publishing house

Incorporating the century-old publisher Papiers, this Parisian publishing house, under the direction of Claire David, is responsible for publishing a large number of contemporary theatrical texts in France, often in collaboration with theatres staging the plays. It is responsible for over thirty new titles a year, and for the 'Répliques' series of texts, edited for education by Michel Vinaver.

Adjani, Isabella

b. 1955, Paris

Actor

Adjani's career was launched in a 1975 François Truffaut film, L'Histoire d'Adèle H. During the 1980s she mixed comic roles and the enigmatic, tormented and sexually confused femme fatale, culminating in Camille Claudel (1988), produced by Adjani and directed by Bruno Nuttyens and, in 1994, Patrice Chéreau's La Reine Margot. Often called the only French star, her mythical status has been magnified by a secretive private life, coupled with a relatively small number of films (an average of one a year since 1975). She was the 1987 president of the Commission d'Avance sur Recettes. In May 1997 she chaired the jury at the Cannes Film Festival.
