Yann Claudel

Actor, Theatre Maker

About Yann

Growing up in several countries, I was lucky to be immersed in different cultural and social environments. Today I pursue this immersion as a research process for acting and theater making in order to best embody stories and transpose social and environmental issues.

 

While studying humanities and management - as well as working for the French Institute of Burma - I have studied theater at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris before attending the Jacques Lecoq International School of Theater from 2016 to 2018.

 

I aim to tackle issues through a physical transposition blending comedy and drama.

 

I am now working across characters and genres, whether on stage or on screen, in English or French, depending on the country and the audience.
