Lambert-wild was born in 1972 in Réunion, a French island territory located in the Indian Ocean off the coast of South India. He is a playwright, director, and actor. Lambert-wild has cultivated his poetic power of imagination through the unique environment of his upbringing, and his magical knack for direction has become highly esteemed. His young age belies his long and impressive history of supervising a wide array of national theater centers across France. Some of his most representative works include a fantasized autobiographical epic titled “The Hypogeum (The Underground Tomb),” “The Molting,” a piece he created alongside indigenous peoples of Brazil, an adaptation of “Waiting for Godot,” and more. In 2014, Lambert-wild received the ‘Chevalier’ (knight) medallion prize from the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres. To date, SPAC has presented three programs directed by him: “The Goat of Monsieur Seguin” (2011), “Splendor and Lassitude of Captain Iwatani Izumi” (2014), and “Richard III – Loyalty binds me”(2018).
Malaguerra is a director and actor. After graduating from the University of Geneva with a master’s degree in geography, he studied acting at the École Supérieure d’Art Dramatique de Genève (ESAD). In 2001, he founded Le Troisième Spectacle, a theatre company that has produced around twenty pieces. In 2009, he became the artistic director of the Théâtre du Crochetan in Monthey, Switzerland. Malaguerra has been working regularly with Jean Lambert-wild since 2012. His co-direction credits include “Waiting for Godot,” “Richard III – Loyalty binds me,” “Roberto Zucco” by Bernard-Marie Koltès, which was performed at the National Theatre Company of Korea (NTCK, Seoul) and an adaptation of Molière’s “Dom Juan or The Feast with the Statue.”
