Summary/Abstract: The conversation between Hélène Cixous and Ariane Mnouchkine revolves around subjects connected to the working methods used by Théâtre du Soleil, especially in terms of dealing with the text. Out of the conversation emerges an image of Mnouchkine's directorial style, the evolution of the role Cixious (the author of the texts) has played in the ensemble and the character of the relationship between the two artists. Talking about the benefits of cooperation, the two women emphasise the importance of building a close link between the author of the text and the creative team, which proves beneficial to both sides. Describing the way of working on a Théâtre du Soleil performance, they pay special attention to the meaning of the category of character and the relationship between the actor and the character enacted on stage.
