I’ve done my all of my work experiences with the Kronope
company. It’s not usually advised to return to the same place everytime, but,
for my part, I have been extremely lucky.
The company was founded in 1983. In its baroque universe and whatever the show, the mask is very important.
I was lucky to have touched several different careers being on my placement.
As a costume designer, I repaired costumes for the shows. I saw weeks of 60 hours and I often stayed up all night but the pride was all mine seeing part of my creations on stage
As a dresser, I saw the other side of the stage props,
while lending a hand for accessories and trying to make myself useful during
the running of the show.
As a lighting director, I helped with the organisation and planning of the lighting. It was very interesting.
On the sidelines
As a make-up artist and accessorist, I worked on the show « Bluebird ». I started two hours before the curtain rise and I stayed on the sidelines to help with the changing of costumes or the retouches in make-up.
I even had the opportunity to get on stage myself as a
replacement for a member of the company on maternity leave. I played two roles
and even took part in a short choreography.
The Kronope family certainly adopted me….
The will be taking me on next year and I shall soon be
moving to Avignon to continue my work.
I shall always have a bit of Kronope in me, whatever happens.
