Biography

Aurélien-Marie Lugné (27 December 1869 – 19 June 1940), known by his stage-name and pen name Lugné-Poe, was a French actor, theatre director, and scenic designer best known for his work at the Théâtre de l'Œuvre, one of the first theatrical venues in France to provide a home for the artists of the symbolist movement at the end of the nineteenth century. Most notably, Lugné-Poe introduced French audiences to the Scandinavian playwrights August Strindberg and Henrik Ibsen.

Life and career

At age 19 he entered the Paris Conservatoire and became part of the Théâtre Libre a private naturalist theatre run by André Antoine. At that time, he decided to be called Lugné-Poe in homage to the American poet Edgar Allan Poe; he also claimed sometimes to be a distant relative, but it is not true.

He also organized a group of painters known as The Nabis. He spread word of the group by writing articles about their work for them.

He later created a group called "La Maison de l'Œuvre" or "Le Théâtre de l'Œuvre" (1893–1929). This was a private group of spectators and an experimental theatre that went against the naturalist movement and that contributed to the symbolist movement in theatre and to the discovery of new playwrights.

In 1895, Jakub Grein and the Independent Theatre Society invited Lugné-Poe and his troupe to present a season of Ibsen's Rosmersholm, The Master Builder and Maurice Maeterlinck's symbolist L'Intruse and Pelléas and Mélisande in London.
