Transmitting

“What the theatre has given me: the ability to escape from a small, narrow, strict world to join one that is inexhaustible and multiple, one that combines literature, poetry, politics and history. This is the theatre we work on every day, to transmit it to young audiences.”

ÉRIC RUF

As a national theatre, it has always been the Comédie-Française’s mission to perform all around France and internationally, a touring tradition that goes back to its origins. These performances outside the walls make up between 10 and 20% of its programming every season. In 2018-2019, it gave 110 performances on tour. It has already performed throughout France and in more than 80 countries around the world. This season, the Troupe will be back on the road with productions that reflect the diversity of the House’s programming.

SINGULIS Alone on stage performances

Actors often have been carrying around a book or some text in their pocket for a long time. The Singulis series, initiated in 2015 at the Studio-Théâtre, is an opportunity to discover them in a practice that is rare for the actors of the Troupe: the alone-on-stage performance. This season they are going on tour.
