Les Saxifrages at Théâtre Massalia

Saxifrages from the latin saxifragum : he who breaks stones – like those little plants that grow through cracks in rocks and on walls. The Théâtre Massalia takes root in those gaps in limbo in time and space - free spaces where they intervene via training, meetings and youth work. They bring people together – through groups and networks – around the issues of art, performance, childhood and youth, in order to get to know one another better and debate together to shake things up and change the way things are done. In short, a programme of events and interventions for teachers, parents, educators and youth workers.
