MONTREAL, July 7, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - On July 4, 2016, the Paris City Council accorded the Delegated Public Service Contract for the Gaîté Lyrique to the Société d'Exploitation de la Gaîté Lyrique (SEGL) [Gaîté Lyrique Operating Company]. The SEGL is headed up by Marc Dondey, in partnership with Franck Bauchard - MuZ connexions, Jean-Dominique Secondi - ARTER, and Monique Savoie - la Société des arts technologiques de Montréal (SAT).
Their project offers a new vision for this space:
La Gaîté Lyrique – Paris
Digital muse for a Global City
Renovated by the City of Paris after being closed for more than 20 years, the iconic Gaîté Lyrique theater – founded in 1862 – reopened in 2011. After a first stage under the direction of Jérôme Delormas, the Gaîté Lyrique will now continue its exploration of all forms of digital creative expression and dialogue between the arts, sciences, and new technologies.
With a pioneering approach, this team – starting in January 2017 – will set out a new concept based on programming at the crossroads of artistic creation and technical and social innovation. A bold, curious spirit will pervade every floor and be active on all fronts.
