Where creativity makes sense!
Théâtre Parminou : a creative theater
Our artistic mission is to develop a popular theater committed the social issues of its time. The foundations of our approach rest on the belief that the theater, like culture in a broader sense, is a common good and the act of creation an avenue of expression shared by the artists and the public. Always driven by this democratic ideal, we pursue the search for new collective spaces both in the creative process and in the venues. Théâtre Parminou continues to question, provoke and challenge the audience through laughter and emotion.
