Anne Monfort created the theater company day-for-night, located at Besançon, in 2000.

She has recently adapted on stage texts of Mathieu Riboulet, Lydie Salvayre, Robespierre, Sophie Wahnich. She works from multiple materials such as adaptations of novels and stage writings, and searches for forms that unite fiction and documentary, verbal and pictorial.


Anne Monfort's creations revolve around the question of point of view, devices that involve narrations alternating between documentary and fiction, and an acting between play and non-play. The actor's body must be a projection surface for the foregrounds, backgrounds, front and back zooms that the viewer's brain constantly makes. She has worked on plastic forms, small forms, and likes to confront several types of textual writing - poetic, fictional and documentary - and scenic writing, working on images and musicality according to a system of editing in the cinematographic sense of the term.
