Adolescence et territoire(s)

Since the doors of its Ateliers Berthier theatre opened at Porte de Clichy, in the heart of the Quartier Politique de la Ville urban regeneration program, a very mixed neighbourhood of the 17th arrondissement (from Ternes to Batignolles, and from La Fourche to Epinettes), the Odéon has been involved in raising awareness amongst younger audiences and those with limited access to culture.
We should no longer view this fast changing urban space, peripheral area of the past and urban centre of the future, as a dividing axis but as a gateway, which will its inhabitants to make this area and its new brand of urbanism their own.
In this unique spatial, context and as part of its mission to open up theatre to wider audiences, the Odéon-Théâtre de l'Europe has sought to develop a project aimed at adolescents from Ateliers Berthier neighbouring areas. After all, these same individuals will be the central players in the life of this district under (re)construction.
Every season since 2012, the « Adolescence & Territoire(s) » program gives around twenty adolescents aged between 15 and 20 years old the opportunity to participate in the creation of a piece of theatre for a whole year, under the guidance of a theatre director.
