Housed in a heavy steel and concrete edifice on the site of the old Théâtre des Jeunes Spectateurs, the no less literally named Nouveau Théâtre de Montreuil widens the remit of its predecessor with a programme that includes theatre, music and dance for all ages. Recent shows have tackled such heavyweight themes as generational conflict, punk music and gender identity. The theatre combines this with a strong pedagogic thrust, whereby members of the public are encouraged to attend (free) workshops on the performing arts, or even take on work placements behind the scenes. A very valuable venue, worth the trip beyond the Périph'.
