Chrystèle Khodr is a theater performer, writer and director based in Beirut. She studied theater in the Institute of Fine Arts, Lebanese university and was trained in physical theater at l’École Internationale de Théâtre LASSAAD Brussels– Jacques Lecoq pedagogy. 

Her work springs from the emergency to reconstitute the collective memory from personal stories. In her most recent projects, Chrystèle is increasingly concerned with the movement of History and its impact on time and narrativity as a basic formal dimension of theater. 

Between 2009 and 2012 she has created small format plays and solos: Bayt Byout, 2007 or how I smashed my bubble envelopes and Beirut Sepia, all of which were shown in several festivals and venues in Lebanon, Egypt, France and Belgium. 

Her latest production Augurs premiered in May 2021 in Beirut and is touring across Europe. 

As well as an independent maker she has collaborated and performed with several artists from multiple disciplines such as Zoukak Theater Company, Waël Ali with whom she wrote and directed Temporary Stay and visual artist and set designer Bissane Al-Charif on the installation I once entered a garden.

Chrystèle was awarded the Ibsen Scope to create an adaptation of the playwright’s text The Pretenders, Ordalie is to premiere in October 2023.  

Her new interactive performance Who killed Youssef Beidas? that that questions the expansion movement of neoliberalism through the cycles of failed love relationships will open on the 25th of June in Beirut Art Center in the framework of Fine Prints exhibition.
