After the T.N.P. he went to the Comédie de l'Est then to the Villeurbanne theater where he staged Nikolai Gogol]'s Dead Souls, he stayed there for six years, acknowledging that Roger Planchon had taught him everything.

He was the co-founder of the ACE15 association (cultural and event association of the 15th arrondissement of Paris) which runs the Georges Brassens Days in October in Parc Georges-Brassens each year.
