Samy Gardès

Project: Souterrain, The Beautiful Journey,

Role: Hermes!

“Hey Samy, I met a guy called Bill. He is looking for a french actor. Would you like to join an English company???”

Few weeks later, february 2005 at the Atelier 231 in Sotteville-lès-Rouen, France: Hello Bill, hello, Sue, hello Mercedes, hello Nix and hello Anna…
I knew I wanted to be part of it.
Few month later, hello Cornwall and the team.
Butterfly in my belly because of the langage but also I knew this time was going to be different…
After 6 month of Souterrain, we were Wildworkers and I remember Mydd saying “We know each other more than our brothers and sisters!!!”
Then Beautiful Journey….The name of the show says everything…
With Wildworks I discovered a new way of making, creating and living theatre. Never found that again anywhere I went since…
As an actor, it definitely change the way I see and do theatre.
As a Samy, my life is definitely inspired by this wildworks way of seeing peoples and life.
My head is full of wildworks images, words and emotions for the rest of my life.
I feel very lucky.
I love it…
