Clément
Hervieu-Léger

533e sociétaire

Having been trained by Jean-Louis Bihoreau at the Conservatory of the 10th arrondissement in Paris, Clément Hervieu-Léger took his first steps at the Comédie-Française in 2000, by interpreting the Clerk in Molière’s Miser (L’Avare) directed by Andrei Serban. Having played in, among other plays, Copi’s Une Visite inopportune by Lukas Hemleb and Fernando Pessoa’s Le Privilège des Chemins by Éric Génovèse, he was admitted into the Company as pensionnaire on the 1st of September 2005 and appointed sociétaire on the 1st of January 2018. He has worked with various directors, including Robert Wilson in Fables by La Fontaine, Marcel Bozonnet in Tartuffe by Molière, Denis Podalydès in Fantasio by Musset and in Lucrezia Borgia by Victor Hugo. Clément Hervieu-Léger has played Bougrelas in Alfred Jarry’s Ubu Roi by Jean-Pierre Vincent, Oreste in Racine’s Andromaque by Muriel Mayette-Holtz and Kapilotadov in Gogol’s Le Mariage directed by Lilo Baur. In 2012, he reunited with Jean-Pierre Vincent for Don Juan or the Feast with the Statue (Dom Juan ou le Festin de pierre) by Molière, followed by Corneille’s La Place royale by Anne-Laure Liégeois and Marcel Aymé’s La Tête des autres by Lilo Baur. At the Festival d’Avignon in July 2016, he played Günther Von Essenbeck in The Damned (Les Damnés), directed by Ivo van Hove after the screenplay by Luchino Visconti.

Outside the Comédie-Française, Anne Delbée directed him in Hernani by Hugo, Daniel Mesguich in Antony and Cleopatra by Shakespeare, Daniel San Pedro in Blood Wedding by García Lorca and Les Cahiers de Nijinski in collaboration with Brigitte Lefèvre.

As a theatre director, Clément Hervieu-Léger staged two comedies by Molière for the Company, La Critique de l’École des femmes and The Misanthrope as well as Marivaux’s Le Petit Maître corrigé. At the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord, he staged Monsieur de Pourceaugnac, a comedy ballet by Molière and Lully. For the opera, he staged Cavalli’s La Didone under the musical direction of William Christie as well as Mozart’s Mitridate under Emmanuelle Haïm’s direction. He has also written the dramaturgy for La Source on the choreography of Jean-Guillaume Bart for the ballet of the Opéra national de Paris where he teaches drama. In 2017, he directed Le Pays lointain by Jean-Luc Lagarce in Strasbourg. He collaborated with Patrice Chéreau on the staging of Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte in 2005 and Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde in 2007. Patrice Chéreau filmed him in Gabrielle in 2005 and in the theatre production of Jon Fosse’s Autumn Dream (Rêve d’automne) in 2010.
