5 rue Curial, Paris 19th, France


Le CENTQUATRE, an artistic establishment in the City of Paris.

Located in the 19th arrondissement and directed by José-Manuel Gonçalvès, the CENTQUATRE provides space for residencies, production and performance for artists and audiences from all corners of the globe. The CENTQUATRE encompasses all forms of art: theatre, dance, music, cinema, video and also culinary, digital and urban art. The vast majority of the centre's programme is made up of artists who are, have been or are going to be in residence at CENTQUATRE. The centre supports and works with young artists and also provides insight into their artistic creations. Conceived as an artistic collaboration, it provides open access to a range of emerging art through a decidedly popular, contemporary and ambitious programme. It is also a vibrant place with shops and areas dedicated to amateur artistic activities and a space for young children.
