Il n’y a pas de ajar – Monologue contre l’identité


From 26 to 28 February 2025

Huge success of last season, we are delighted to welcome Johanna Nizard again for this extraordinary solo performance around the obsession with identity.

Delphine Horvilleur, the third female rabbi in France, gives us in this play the delightful story of Abraham Ajar, handling Jewish humor with angry refinement. On set, Johanna Nizard intensely embodies this character who declares himself to be the son of Émile Ajar, a fictional writer invented by the novelist Romain Gary. Based on the principle that we are first and foremost the children of the books we have read, Delphine Horvilleur invites us to take a step towards the foreigner in each of us. With disarming lucidity and uncompromising frankness, Abraham Ajar embodies and questions the notion of identity and all the pitfalls that result from it. He calls out to the world from the depths of his cellar, his “Jewish hole”. It metamorphoses, questions the contemporary world and, with humor, invites us to laugh at dogma, at our identities and our certainties.
