Originally from Bordeaux, Julien Cigana trained at the Ecole d’art dramatique Claude Mathieu (Paris 18e) and through various training internships in clowning and voice. As a freelance actor, he has worked with Alain Gautré, Xavier Lemaire, Philippe Adrien and Jean Bellorini, amongst others. Theatre is his first passion, and in 2002 he discovered the Baroque style and what he deems its “explosion of the senses.” Julien would go on to play in several productions under Jean-Denis Monory and Benjamin Lazar. Since, he has been the narrator for numerous classical concerts, notably with Olivier Baumont and Il Festino ensemble. He wrote his first play, Le bois dont je suis fait, in 2016 with Nicolas Devort (Les Cygnes Editions).
