Working with students

Working with students

There is a regular partnership with the University of Besançon, where Anne Monfort teaches undergraduate courses, particularly in German dramaturgy. 

She has also led workshops combining theory and practice in master's degrees at the universities of Besançon and Poitiers, involving students in various research projects: In 2019, Besançon master's students worked on the definitional and theoretical issues of Operation Caravaggio ; in 2021-22, Besançon and Poitiers master's students worked on Ken Bugul's La Folie et la mort and Penda Diouf's La grande ourse , thus creating the premises of the Fantasticalité research project.

Projects have been created that echo the multilingual dimension of the company's work: for example, in 2014, Anne Monfort created Indignation/Empörung, , bringing together a group of young French and German people, with the Shakespeare Company of Bremen, the Institut Français of Bremen, the Théâtre Paul Eluard in Choisy-le-Roi, and with the support of the Erasmus + programme.
