Visit to the performance 'One Song' by Miet Warlop at points communs

Our MBA in Performing Arts Management & Entertainment had an insightful visit to the Théâtre des Louvrais, courtesy of our partnership with Festival d'Automne.

Since its inception in 1972, the Festival d’Automne à Paris has been a staunch supporter of artists, providing a platform for the production and presentation of their work. With a commitment to multi-disciplinary, international, and nomadic programming, the festival remains steadfast in its dedication to fostering creativity, openness, and discovery.

At the heart of the festival's mission lies a diverse and multi-disciplinary program spanning across theatre, music, dance, visual arts, and cinema. From September to December each year, the festival curates nearly 50 events, drawing in an audience of over 250,000 spectators. This extensive program showcases the richness and vibrancy of contemporary arts while promoting the convergence of different artistic disciplines.

Following the show, students, accompanied by Professor Alexander Ovechkin, had a meeting with Milan Schudel, an actor from the troupe, to discuss the nuances of the creative process in managing performing arts productions.The venue itself, Points communs – Théâtre des Louvrais, is an integral part of the vibrant cultural landscape directed by Fériel Bakouri since 2017. Known as Common Points, this new national scene situated in Cergy-Pontoise and Val d'Oise, is dedicated to fostering a dynamic relationship between the arts and the community it serves.

With a diverse repertoire of over 60 shows spanning across various disciplines including theater, dance, music, circus, and magic, Common Points ensures that its programming caters to audiences of all ages and interests.
