With a degree in literature and two years of study under Henri Rollan at l'Ecole de la rue Blanche, Geneviève Mnich has acted in a number of plays from the repertoire of Molière, Marivaux, and notably Gorki, with Jean Dasté and Hubert Gignoux, at the time of an innovative program in France aimed at theatrical decentralization that was initiated by André Malraux. She has been solicited by film and television alike and alternates playing roles for both, yet always holds a preference for the theater.
In film Ms. Mnich has worked with Bertrand Tavernier (Un dimanche à la campagne), Alain Resnais, Bertrand Blier, Raoul Ruiz, Claude Lelouch, Robert Enrico, Michel Spinosa, Martin Provost (Séraphine), and Stéphane Brizé. In theater she has worked with Jean-Pierre Vincent and has since played in roles written exclusively by contemporary authors: Jan Fosse with Jacques Lassale and Frédéric Belier Garcia, Jean-Claude Grumberg and Daniel Keene, Brassaï with Maurice Benichou, Fabrice Melquiot with Emmanuel Demarcy Mota, and other modern authors with Gilberte Tsaï and Zabou Breitman. With Peter Brook she acted in La Berceuse by Samuel Beckett (French version) at the Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord. She later met Didier Bezace and acted in May at his theater, with the script adaptation by Kureishi, and Un soir une ville by Daniel Keene, in which she played a person confronted with Alzheimer's disease--the prelude to working on Savannah Bay.
