This project concerns the staging of the play ‘As you like it’ written by William Shakespeare. The performance, planned to take place in 2014 in the theatre of Ateliers Berthier, was cancelled due to the death of the great french director Patrice Chéreau.

The theatre planning included two blocks of seats placed across from each other and a movable tree which would move according to the needs of the show.

One of the acoustic goals of this project was to optimize the sound quality between the actors and the public and the actors themselves. For this reason, a system of curved reflectors has been proposed in order to distribute the reflected sound over the entire surface of the audience area.
