La Ménagerie de Verre is an edgy multidisciplinary arts centre (set in a former printing works), rooted in the avant-garde, with performances that mix theatre, dance, video and contemporary art. Director, Marie-Therese Allier, calls this ‘the research laboratory’, so you get the gist: the more experimental the better. There are regular workshops too, taught by a stream of respected international artists, so check the website for the up-to-the-minute programme.
