A THEATER WHERE DIVERSE ART FORMS CIRCULATE
The programming of Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil makes various performing arts - theater, dance, circus, music, musical theater – meet and circulate, while developing international collaborations and inviting French and international artists. We are launching an highlight about musical theater, merging improvised, contemporary and rock’n roll music forms as well as other aspects of musicality and singing,
A THEATER WHICH REFLECTS ON THE WORLD
We also want the shows in our program to raise questions and to depict acts that account for our times, pieces offered by artists who explore new forms of writings for the stage, artists who are controversial and question our preconceptions, artists of our times, who place the present at the heart of their work.
A THEATER OPEN TO NEW HORIZONS
We are working in two directions, inviting foreign productions to Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil and bringing our own productions to venues and festivals abroad.
This spatial mobility also implies a movement in thinking, articulating a multicultural local context and an international context, in an enriching and meaningful dialectics. International productions shown at Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil convey the echoes of the place where they were first produced, but they also mediate our perception of the local context.
We want this theater to be a private place for Montreuil residents as well as a creative space dedicated to larger, national and international audiences; a place dedicated to artists and a place of sharing, connected to its territory, its city, its region and to the wider world.
