Obituary

Guy-Claude et Michel Launay, grands scénographes viennent de disparaitre. Guy-Claude François était scénographe d’Ariane Mouchkine et fut l’un des principaux créateurs du Théâtre du Soleil. Michel Launay était le scénographe de Victor Garcia, de Mehmet Ulusoy, de A.L. Perinetti parmi d’autres. Il est difficile de dissocier son travail de celui des metteurs en scène auprès desquels il a collaboré. Aussi bien l’un que l’autre faisaient partie de la même génération et avaient par ailleurs consacré beaucoup de temps à l’enseignement.
