L’ École des Actes
The Théâtre de La Commune is a National Dramatic Center (CDN) whose mission is the creation, promotion and distribution of contemporary theatre shows.
L’École des Actes was created in 2016 by the Théâtre de La Commune with the desire "to inscribe theatre into the tempo of the city, and to reflect on the links between the population living there and the art that is invented there. "
The school was founded on the principles of hospitality and empowerment. Open to all, it is built and grows around encounters "for the construction of an affirmative and collective machine of friendships, confidence/trust and courage. "
L’École des Actes is at the heart of the Théâtre de La Commune, in the programming of shows and through its activities in the Fort d'Aubervilliers district and the Quatre Chemins theatre. Articulated around groups of interest and work, the school offers a range of workshops (architecture, theatre, languages), of counsel (legal aspects) and of assemblies that are created and evolve according to the needs and desires of the participants.
In this context, we are developing a European cooperation project focusing on the roles that cultural institutions can play in the migration crisis. Our partners are the Kampgnagel in Hamburg, and the Santarcangelo festival.
extrapole ensures, on behalf of the Théâtre de la Commune:
methodological support (assistance in constructing and setting up of the project and the partnership);
