La Mousson d’Été (Pont-à-Mousson)

Founded in 1995 by artistic director Michel Didym, la Mousson d’Eté is one the major European events focused on the discovery, development and promotion of new playwriting. The Abbaye of Prémontrés, located in the heart of Lorraine, for seven days opens its doors to authors, directors, university teachers and students, actors as well as the public inviting them to explore contemporary theatre. La Mousson d’Eté proposes a wide range of readings, mises en espace – of texts both unpublished or translated for the first time in French -, conversations and performances.

La Mousson lets you sneak into the playwright’s workshop to show you the very core of theatre, before scenery, costumes, production and staging transform it.

Théâtre Ouvert

Théâtre Ouvert

Théâtre Ouvert (Paris)

Théâtre Ouvert missions can be defined as promoting the contemporary dramatic art’s renewal, provoking the emergence of new kinds of writing by doing investigation and trial, or even guiding the development of those writings by the production, the edition and the circulation of texts and theatrical forms such as readings, setting up, shows, performances or radio plays…
The implementation of those missions is based on a structure organised in two important works.
First of all the work qualified as an “underground” one, corresponds to the reading of manuscript by the permanent members of the theatre but also to dramaturgic advices to authors. It also corresponds to the setting up of meetings between authors and stage artists. And finally, to a time of research and residency through for example the EPAT’s plan – EcolePratique des Auteurs de Théâtre.
The final part of our work consists of public exhibition by the publication in the Tapuscrit collection or by public presentation at different steps of the play’s creation.
