    Buy tickets Chantiers d'Europe 2017 first local collaboration
    Taipei and Paris join hands and deconstruct politics

    Chantiers d'Europe is an event that showcases artists and companies come from countries that are under-represented on our stages. On the occasion of its 8th edition, the festival casts a look upon artistic production in Europe now that our continent is full of uncertainties and heckled by a severe social and moral crisis. Under such circumstances it's our duty to strongly reaffirm the leading role of the artists and of culture as well as our need to move forward by combining different approaches, cultural heritages and countries. We believe that Chantiers d’Europe is a highlight more than ever significant in order to look at Europe and to feel it in a new, different way but also in order to reassert the values we believe in.

    Théâtre de la Ville

    Established in 1862, this storied theatre has weathered not only the passage of time but also two world wars. After being subjected to countless name changes, it was finally awarded its current designation in 1968. It wasn’t until the late 70s that international recognition was achieved through the theatre’s courting of modern dance performances.

    Current director Emmanuel Demarcy-Mota has strived to solidify the theatre’s diverse and international approach. Under her direction many 20th century classics were reinterpreted focusing on a singular theme: the role in the individual in a collective society, this individual’s sense of responsibility, and their freedom of thought.
