Belgian author Chris van Camp was in Chartres last July for the first half of her citybooks residency. From the 14th until the 20th of November she returned to the city of ‘light and perfume’ for a second stint, this time with her citybook 32, Rue aux Juifs.

Van Camp finished her text, a dialogue between an elderly man and his young girlfriend, after her first stay, and deBuren asked Michel Perquy to translate it to French. This French version was performed on November 19th in the Mediathek l’Apostrophe in Chartres, by Thierry Plantegenet and Gwenaële Langlade.

Thierry Plantegenet is the director of Cultural Affairs for the city of Chartres, our local citybooks coordinator and an actor. Gwenaële Langlade is actress and director of the Théâtre du Labyrinthe in Chartres. The duo brought a succesfull interpretation of 32, Rue aux Juifs. The audience reactions to Chris van Camps’ citybook were very enthousiastic. The English translation of the text will soon be available on this website.
