In 2011, she played the title role in Tania, a short feature by Giovanni Sportiello, which won the Centre national du cinéma et de l’image animée Prize, while she won the Award for Best Female Performance at the Nice Festival. The same year, she enrolled at École du Théâtre national de Strasbourg where she worked with Alexandre Gavras, David Lescot, Claudio Tolcachir, Franck Vercruyssen of the Flemish collective tg STAN and Éric Vigner among others.

Pensionnaire of the Comédie-Française since the 1st of October 2013, she made her debut as Aegiale in Molière’s Psyché directed by Véronique Vella.

In 2015, she interpreted Amelia in Federico García Lorca’s The House of Bernarda Alba directed by Lilo Baur, and Viviane in Feydeau’s Un fil à la patte by Jérôme Deschamps. Françoise Gillard and Claire Richard asked her to participate in L’Autre, a show combining dance and theater, which they conceived and staged. Arnaud Desplechin saw Claire de la Rüe du Can as Bertha in Strindberg’s The Father, while in 2016, Clément Hervieu-Léger offered her the role of Hortense in Le Petit-Maître corrigé by Marivaux.
