Latifa Djerbi is an author, actress and performer, as well as project leader for « Les Faiseurs de Rêves ». Her pieces seek to do away with fake sympathy and dissemblance; an iconoclast, she makes her characters utter hard truths, and conventionally hushed realities which she is able to voice out as a French-speaking Swiss and Tunisian artist. Her piece La danse des affranchies was published with Lansman and translated in German as well as Romanian ; it was performed in Maxi Gorki Theater at the end of 2022. Her texts have a strong political component but they are very intimate. She plays with self-deprecating humor and autofiction, and opens a moving singular path towards universal questions like identity and freedom. She has been familiarizing herself with urban theatre since 2016 led by the very demanding Jacques Livchine. She has co-created surprising urban performances with other artists since 2021 on board an “Arts Vessel”, a former library-bus transformed into a nomad and innovative stage. In 2023, her « Vaisseau d’Art » went further, by initiating a journey combining virtual reality, the real world and the digital one. Sharing experiences with the audience as well as traveling between several worlds are important aspects of her work.
