Azilys Tanneau was born in Châteauroux in 1996. During her studies at Sciences Po, she studied sociology and political science, as well as writing in the workshops of Laurence Tardieu and Nicolas Doutey. She also trained as a scriptwriter at the University of Paris-Nanterre.
In September 2020, she participated in the European Theatre Writing Workshop of the Ville Nouvelle d’Avignon. It was during this residency that she began writing Without Moderation(s) (Sans Modération), a text that won an award for the author of the Journées du théâtre lyonnais and that will help the creation of Artcena in 2021.
This play was published by Lansman in December 2021.
