Marie Nimier

Since her debut success SIRÈNE (SIRENE) in 1985, which won an award from the Académie française, Marie Nimier (b. 1957 in France) has published a dozen novels that have been translated into numerous languages. She was awarded the Prix Médicis for the novel LA REINE DU SILENCE (THE QUEEN OF SILENCE), published in 2004. Although she writes mainly novels, her work also includes children’s books and poetry (they have been interpreted by Juliette Gréco, Art Mengo, Eddy Mitchell, Jean Guidoni and Enzo Enzo, among others). Marie Nimier participates in musical and other interdisciplinary productions and has been writing dramatic texts for several years. Together with choreographer Dominique Boivin, she has created À QUOI TU PENSES? (WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT?), a piece for five dancers and two actors. In 2012, the Théâtre du Rond-Point in Paris presented her stage play LA CONFUSION (THE CONFUSION) in a production by Karelle Prugnaud.
