Description image 200 x 139

The “Theatre du Mouvement” and more recently Transversales, a network founded and coordinated by Yves Marc and Claire Heggen in 1993, have for almost 25 years been developing a large spectrum of activities based on the body and the theatre: movements, gestures, dialoguing with music, words, light, scenography. This identity, well known in France and abroad, is the basis on which the company wishes to orientate the site’s artistic course. La Fonderie (the foundry) is a place where the Theatre du Mouvement can settle and carry out its activities, a cultural development site for the town of Bagnolet, and a place for international artistic exchanges within the scope of the European “Transversales” network. It’s more of a theatrical production and training site than a performing theatre.
