Mériam Korichi

Korichi studied philosophy at the Sorbonne, at the Ecole Normale Supérieure of Paris and at Harvard as a Visiting Fellow. She has published several books including a biography of Andy Warhol, and has also worked as a dramaturge and stage director collaborating on the staging of the Précieuses ridicules by Molière, the Grande Magia by Eduardo de Filippo and recently the Tragedy of Hamlet at the Comédie-Française. She translated into French and adapted for the stage The Comedy of Errors and Richard III by Shakespeare; and she adapted Ubu Enchained by Alfred Jarry. Intending to challenge the frontiers of her two areas of work, and to explore the format of multi-stage events, she has conceived and curated night long Philosophy events around the world: Paris in 2010, London in 2012 and 2013, Berlin in 2014, and New York in 2015. Next editions are commissioned by the Helsinki Festival, to take place in Kiasma Museum next Sept 2nd, 2016, and by UNESCO to take place at UNESCO headquarters in Paris next Nov. 18th, 2016.
