Younes Bachir is a theatre director, mentor and actor. He has twenty five years of international experience in performing arts, experimenting different artistic languages based on collective creation (physical theatre, chamber opera, macro events, video art and cinema).
I have had the great fortune to share a creative space with Ira during an Andante project in Melbourne in 2009, and I was very impressed with his presence and his scenic mastery.
Seeing him work, play and reinvent the theatrical space was a great learning experience and a great opportunity to consider my own way of working as a director.
Ira is a 'Maestro' because of his great experience and his great vision of play, real play, like in life's own play.
Thank you Maestro!
