Originally founded as the Théâtre Molière, this place is centuries old, where once revolutionaries came to perform their plays. In the 1990s, the 17th-century room was redesigned as a centre for poetry. The programme mixes the works of classical French masters (Victor Hugo, Julio Cortazar, Guillaume Apollinaire), less popular but also outstanding contemporary poets (Christophe Manon) and talented actors (Philippe Caubère, Anaïs de Courson). A multidisciplinary venue that promotes creativity and doesn’t shy away from debate.
