Christiane Jatahy

Christiane Jatahy is a Brazilian director, actress, playwright and filmmaker who has gone through Temporada Alta with works like Entre chien et loup, O agora que demora, A floresta que anda, ¿Y si marcharan a Moscú? o Julia. Se trata de una de las figuras de la escena brasileña con mayor proyección internacional.

Born in Rio de Janeiro in 1968, Christiane Jatahy establishes in her works a dialogue between different artistic areas such as theater and cinema that question the boundaries between reality and fiction. Its disciplinary multiplicity gives rise to documentary, audiovisual and theatrical installations such as, in addition to those mentioned, Utopia.doc (2013) o Walking Forest (2016).

In 2018, the leaflet begins Our Odyssey, inspired by La odisea of Homero. The first part, Ithaca, premiered at the Odéon-Théâtre del Europe in Paris. O agora que demora was, well, its second part filmed in several countries, where it mixed Greek fiction with real stories of refugee artists.

Christiane Jatahy, a relationship between cinema and theatre

Christiane Jatahy‘s works also explore the intimate relationship between cinema and theatre, to the point of co-existing in the same space-time. In other words, the foundation of Jatahy’s production lies in the simultaneous recording and projection of a film within a play. As the performance goes on, a team of cameras, often well integrated into the script so as not to displace the viewer, film the scene, which is projected onto a screen. On the other hand, the political character is another of the most identifying features of his works.

In 2022, Christiane Jatahy won the Golden Lion of the Venice Biennale for her theatrical career. Currently, Christiane Jatahy is an associated artist at the Odéon-Théâtre de la Europa, Centquatre-Paris, Théâtre National Wallonie-Brussels, Comedia de Ginebra, Schauspielhaus Zürich and Temporada Alta.
