The Festival

The Paris Fringe festival presents shows from international and local companies working in English. There is a focus on innovative approaches and an emphasis on contemporary themes. Be it theatre, dance or comedy, the festival aims to support work that can't otherwise be found in Paris and to bring exciting art forms to a new audience across a variety of traditional and alternative venues in the city. There are also workshops, talks and events to give space to artists and audiences to interact and exchange.
