Caroline Guiela Nguyen


Caroline Guiela Nguyen’s great theatrical piece began with “the desire to put on a show in a Vietnamese restaurant”. Then there was the time of creation, and the collection of real testimonies, on the ground. These sparks finally gave rise to a journey through memory and time, spread over half a century, between France and Vietnam. Triumphantly received at the Avignon Festival in 2017, Saïgon navigates between great history and the intimate, to draw up a portrait of “two worlds that have crossed, loved, destroyed and then forgotten each other for sixty years now”. On stage, a dozen Vietnamese or French actors – professional or not – give life to a moving choral tale, which explores the themes of family, exile, or love, tinged with nostalgia.
