Olivier Cadiot is a poet, novelist, and translator. He is the author of L'Art Poetic’ (1988; English version by Sun and Moon Press, 1999) and several novels, many of which were adapted for the stage by French director Ludovic Lagarde: Futur, Ancien, Fugitif (1993), Le colonel des Zouaves (1997), Retour définitive et durable de l’être aimé, Fairy Queen (2002), Un nid pour quoi faire (2007), and Un mage en été (2010). Both Un nid pour quoi faire and Un mage en été were adapted for the stage by Lagarde for the 2010 Avignon Festival, where Cadiot was invited as an Associate Artist. Cadiot works regularly with musicians and composers, including Pascal Dusapin, with whom he created Il-li-ko and the opera Romeo et Juliette, and the French rock musician Rodolphe Burger.

Cadiot is also the translator of the Psalms and Song of Songs for the new version of The Bible, published in 2002.  He has been associated with the artistic collective Comédie de Reims as a playwright since 2009. Some of Cadiot’s works have been translated into English by Charles Bernstein and Cole Swensen (among others Colonel Zoo in 2005), and published in American reviews of poetry ("Serie d'Ecriture n°7," published by K. and R. Waldrop, Burning Deck).
