International Festival Portraits | Juliette Binoche

Blog

Actress Juliette Binoche passionately describes the importance of actors fusing their body and mind when performing on stage.

Only connect the prose and the passion, and both will be exalted, and human love will be seen at its highest. Live in fragments no longer.

E.M. Forster, Howards End


Juliette Binoche performed in Antigone during the 2015 International Festival.

The International Festival Portraits are a series of interviews with actors, choreographers, musicians, conductors, writers and directors talking about the art that they love.

The 2015 International Festival Portraits feature Juliette Binoche, Simon McBurney, Nicola Benedetti, Robert Lepage and Anne-Sophie Mutter in a series of personal reflections on their art-form, the nature of live performance, and the unique connection they experience with an audience every time they take to the stage.
