60 years of theatre
Les Gémeaux was directed from 1985 to January 2021 by Françoise Letellier.
Since February 2021 it has been directed by Séverine Bouisset.
A nation-wide influence
These fundamentals are not fixed. They open up to new aesthetics and other disciplines as the programming progresses. They follow the world and increasingly integrate a digital dimension. They go out to meet young people and families by inviting them outside the walls of the Theatre.
The responsibilities of a National Theatre
Les Gémeaux is part of the network of 76 Scènes nationales, mainly located in medium-sized towns throughout France. This ambitious label implies a certain number of responsibilities.
The first is artistic: it means offering a multidisciplinary programme, reflecting the main trends in contemporary artistic production. The artistic responsibility of the National Scenes is towards the artists themselves, by facilitating their research and creative work.
The second is public: the link with the communities and the inhabitants is at the heart of the mission of the National Scenes.
The third is professional: their anchorage in the French cultural landscape now gives them a new responsibility of training, facilitating and of being a reference in the landscape of artistic creation and distribution that surrounds them.
