Stanislas Nordey (2015)

Stanislas Nordey (born 1966) is a French actor and theatre director. He is the son of actress Véronique Nordey and film director Jean-Pierre Mocky.


Nordey was born in Paris. After his studies at the Conservatoire national supérieur d'art dramatique, he made his directorial debut in 1988, with La Dispute by Marivaux at the Théâtre Pitoëff in Geneva. He is known for his innovative directing, in particular, texts by Pier Paolo Pasolini (Bêtes de style in 1992 at the Festival d'Avignon Off, Porcherie, etc.) and by Werner Schwab, and also for his direction of operas.

From 1994 to 1997, he was the artist associated with the Théâtre Nanterre-Amandiers at the invitation of Jean-Pierre Vincent and, from 1998 to 2001, he worked at the Théâtre Gérard Philipe - Centre dramatique national in Saint-Denis before leaving due to the severe financial crisis.[1] He explained this failure, his adventures in "citizen theatre" and related his artistic journey in his interview collection, Passions civiles.

Today, he is teaching director at the high school of the Théâtre national de Bretagne. In 2008 he won the "Laurence Olivier Award" in London for the opera Pelléas et Mélisande.
