In agreement with André Rossinot, mayor of Nancy, former minister, and Jean-Pierre Masseret, senator of Moselle, president of the regional council of Lorraine, Frédéric Mitterrand, minister of Culture and Communication, appoints actor and director Michel Didym as director of the National Drama Centre of Nancy Lorraine.

Michel Didym is an actor and director. Trained at the École nationale supérieure d'Art dramatique in Strasbourg, he has performed under the direction of André Engel, Jorge Lavelli, Georges Lavaudant and Alain Françon, where he has been the assistant on several shows. His artistic link with Lorraine was forged from his first creations, including «Boomerang, the red salon» by Philippe Minyana, who gave his name to his company «Boomerang». Creator in 1995, in Pont à Mousson, of «La Mousson d ‘été», a laboratory of contemporary writing, he dedicates his career as an artist to defend living French, European and foreign authors.

At the National Drama Centre of Nancy Lorraine, which he wants above all a production house, he plans to forge links between the texts of yesterday and the writings of today, to make theatre a “place to keep company” by sharing it with many artists, to attract a diverse audience by creating a special event called “RING” (Rencontres Internationales des Nouvelles Générations) every year during Saint Nicholas Day. It also envisages the creation of a «Theatre Academy of Free Time», organized in mirror with the CDN’s programming and open to all who have time and curiosity to discover and discover themselves through the theatre.

Michel Didym will succeed Charles Tordjman on January 1, 2010, who will continue, independently, the pioneering work that was his for 17 years in Nancy.
