Historical city of the cinematography, Épinay-sur-Seine also shines with its stage-based art.
Site of creation and artistic transmission, the Maison du Théâtre et de la Danse (MTD) organises the cultural life of the town : around thirty shows are on offer every season.
Centre of activities, the MTD welcomes troupes in-residence and teams of artists, associated in the creation and distribution of shows and encounters with the inhabitants.
This pleasant bustle is complemented by workshops for a varied audience : theatre, dance, circus and clown for children, from 4 yrs and up to 12 yrs old; theatre for teenagers and adults, students of Villetaneuse, day-time patients at the local hospital. The workshops are led by authors, stage directors, actors, dancers etc.
One of the highlights, the Renc'arts de juin : to discover the talents revealed in the workshops.
Guided visits of the theatre and meetings with the visiting troupes are organised all year round.
Theatre, dance, music : in Épinay-sur-Seine, stage-based art is not an act!
