At the beginning there is the light!... " Ghoslight " . In french, we call it "la servante", the stage's protective spirits : a little lamp on a post, lit on the stage when all have left, so as not to lose any of the theatre’s ghosts in the darkness of the night.
Magali trained as student at the Cours Florent in Paris for three years, during which she worked with coaches/lecturers/tutors such as Jean-Pierre Garnier, Eric Ruf or Isabelle Nanty.
She is versatile and interested in all acting media. Her experience includes not only theatre, under the direction of Romane Bohringer in C. Frechette’s "Les 7 Jours de Simon" or Guillaume Canet in V.Havel’s " Vernissage " and street theatre "Jean Louis 2000 " with the Company Le Muscle, but also TV series like " Navarro ", "La crime", "Section de Recherche", "Le juge est une femme" etc..and cinema with films such as "Vicky Banjo" (2016 D. Imbert), "Léa" ( 2011 B.Rolland ) and "Les Textiles" ( 2004 F.Landron ) .
Magali’s interest in writing developed here in London. She initially put pen to paper to give life to "Miss Doubizoux", the character she plays in her first stand-up comedy in English.
With "La troupe", one of the workshops referred to in more detail below, she has developed a process of collective creation and writing to deliver innovative shows which then go into production like "Backstage" and an adaptation of " Murder on the Orient-express".
In 2018 she produced LADY MACWATA for The Voila Festival. It's a divised play based on her childhood memories in Africa. The play is directed by Clint Dyer and it has received the support of The Arts Council of England.
