Residency Pontoise


Course leaders: Ophélie Gaillard, Brice Sailly

«These three years of Pulcinella’s presence in Pontoise were the occasion for grass-roots actions and raising awareness of various publics, whether students, in difficulty or impeded. These committed artists who make up the ensemble accompanied us in opening the doors to places like old people’s homes, hospitals and prisons and enabled us to intervene in the schools of our territory, creating unprecedented emotion and richness every time. This residency was a rich mutual exchange, very valuable for the Festival, enabling it to continue its development alongside sensitive artists in tune with the objectives that the Festival has always sought to develop.».
