What is TTFPP?
The Francophone Theater Troupe of Phnom-Penh Cambodia, was created by Christophe Dellocque in 2010.
Julia took over the direction of the group in 2015 when she arrived in Cambodia over that period of time she organized several shows, such as: The 3 Musketeers by A. Dumas, Don Juan comes back from war by Odon Von Horvath or 12 angry Men by Reginald Rose adapted into a musical accompanied by a live rock band on stage. They were rewarded at the Plazzies (the English Phnom Penh Players Awards) for the Best Show in Life, Love and others illnesses; Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor and Actress and Best Actress in a supporting role in The Lesson by Ionesco.
Initially TTFPP was a small group of enthusiasts, but from Julia's second show they were already fifteen and finally twenty, they collaborated with Cambodian, French and English-speaker actors, musicians, theater, cinema, technicians and a few local associations. The Francophone Drama Group became TTFPP in 2016, the logo was designed by Sarah Marcni. Julia created an identity, carried out marketing campaigns and finally developed a cultural calendar that soon became expected by not only the French and British communities but also by Cambodians. TTFPP indeed always had at heart to touch an audience as large as possible, for instance by using subtitles.
"My work with the actors consisted in directing and guiding them through theatrical practices and techniques, on stage or not, and both collectively or individually through personal training.
For TTFPP, I was in charge of creating the shows, from the adaptation of the selected plays, to the creation of the lighting and sound stage settings and the implementation of the global atmosphere of each performance. I surrounded myself with professionals to realize my most ambitious creations, like the National Fencing Team of Cambodia to train actors and perform with them on stage in The 3 Musketeers, or professional musicians and singers to join the actors in 12 angry Men.
My goal through our performances was to bring joy and emotions to our wide audience in Cambodia."
