Puppetry in Charleville-Mezieres at the World Festival of Puppet Theatres is also about the shows in the Off Festival. Check out the programme!
For this new edition of the Off Festival, more than 260 shows performed by the 66 participating companies are proposed. The festival offers free performances in 9 places in the town centre and the different parts of Charleville-Mezieres.
Venues, schedules, artists and other practical information are to be found in the online programme (Be aware of programme updates during the festival!).
Official organiser since 1972, the MJC Gambetta, now called the MCL, La Maison de la Culture et des loisirs 'Ma Bohème', develops quality programming and sets up the Off Festival linked to Charleville-Mezieres' social organisations.
The festival for local people: on the last Sunday of the festival (24/09), the MIAM (Mouvement Inter associatif des Arts de la Marionnette) organises a festive day from 11 am to 6 pm at l'ïle du Vieux Moulin for the closing of the Off Festival. Performances of professional and amateur companies, walkabouts, exhibitions and workshops are planned.
