»From kindergarten to University
Because a live performance doesn’t end with the “final curtain”, the National Theatre of Nice, ever mindful of its mission to support artistic and cultural activities, proposes numerous and highly diverse events throughout the Season: behind-the-scenes visits, meetings with artists/actors, visits to your classroom to present and discuss shows before you come to see them, access to rehearsals.
Our aim is to help young people view live performance as a collective creative process and to see their visit to the theatre as being part of a much bigger journey.
Our booklet, L’avant-scène tnn* and other teaching materials will accompany you throughout the Season, helping you to prepare and contextualize the shows so that your students have a keener critical eye and greater sensitivity as spectators.
Feel free to get in touch with us (contacts below) to help plan your artistic and cultural educational venture.
Shakespeare freestyle ! Shakespeare freestyle! is a bold educational project (now in its 4th edition) that continues to offer opportunities to youngsters to perform Shakespeare on the big stage at the tnn. The Shakespearean Éclaireurs also take to the road to bring you their travelling show (directed by Irina Brook), spreading the idea of accessible theatre for all.
And finally, since you are key to the whole transmission process, we have drama courses that are open to you through the PAF (Academic Training Programme, Nice).
