Reims Scène d'Europe 2017

International Theatre Festival in Reims, France


La Cartonnerie, Césaré - Centre national de création musicale, la Comédie de

Reims – Centre dramatique national, le FRAC Champagne Ardenne, le manège, scène nationale-reims, Nova Villa and l’Opéra de Reims.


The cultural scenes from Reims gathered together for the Festival since 2009, will present for 10 days a program mixing theater, dance, music, opera, circus, performances and young performances.

Working together to prepare for the next edition of Reims Scènes d’Europe, they chose to approach a theme that reflects the issues at the heart of the work of European artists, particularly sensitive to changes that shake our continent.


So, this programming is made in the spirit of the Maxim-Gorki Theater of Berlin, whose project is "to think of the city as a whole, with all those who have arrived there in recent decades, whether they are refugees, exiles, immigrants, or simply that they have grown up in Berlin". The festival aims to present works that question our European identity by paying attention to its diversity (origins, religions, sexual preferences or even through multiculturalism), European and international artists such as Sanja Mitrović, Argyro Chioti, Myriam Marzouki, Massimo Furlan, Malika Djardi, Faustin Linyekula, Denis Mpunga, Carole Karemera...


This year again, the Festival will make it possible to share the performances of major European figures; Peter Brook, Falk Richter, Fabrice Murgia, the Diotima Quartet, and the main works of the repertoire: The Nozze di Figaro ...

The richness of Reims Scènes d'Europe is also to be a place of debate and circulation of ideas in which the texts occupy a central place, such as those of the author Aiat Fayez or Yamen Mohamad, Syrian author and director, refugee in Reims; whose work will be presented for the first time in France.
