Workshops & Residences


July 19th – August 4th, 2017



Affiche stage été 2017

The Footsbarn Theatre will give you rendez-vous this summer for more than fifteen days of theatre workshop with the artists of the famous company, from july 19th to august 4th, 2017.

The key material for this course will be William Shakespeare’s Winter Tale. This piece presents a range of situations as wide as it is varied, and its unique structure – or 16 years between acts – allows a shift from tragedy to a rural comedy, before going to the ending.

This piece offers us a beautiful panoply of opposites : tragedy/comedy, jealousy/repentence, men/women, court/countryside and will allow us to produce a show at the end of the workshop full of dynamics dear to Shakespeare.

this show will be presented at the opening of our festival “Hérisson en fête” on august 4th, 2017 !
