Project description

The Théâtre Soleil is a cultural association working to develop theatre for young audiences and to promote artistic and cultural education. Its mission is governed by the creation, training and production of shows for young audiences and all audiences in disciplines such as theatre, puppetry and storytelling.

Convinced of the usefulness of art for the individual construction and cultural identity of the child, the “Sosongo” (“the right way”) initiative wishes to increase the range of quality shows for young audiences. It also works to involve schoolchildren in the process of artistic creation and to develop the creative spirit of educational staff. Through its activities, it contributes to the reinforcement of citizenship, social cohesion, the prevention of extremism and the fight against terrorism.
