Contemporary creation in all its diversity

In constant movement, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS is a venue for all, a space for creation, a creator of shows of an international scale open to all contemporary arts through a programme that is resolutely popular, contemporary and challenging, carried by artists from all over the world.

It takes an interest in all forms of artistic disciplines: theatre, visual art, dance, music, cinema, video, but also culinary, digital and urban art.

Considered as a collaborative artistic platform, it gives access to all contemporary arts through a programme that is resolutely popular, contemporary and challenging.



A collaborative plateform

Its functioning manifests itself mainly by the presence of artists in residency all throughout the year (among which a dozen are currently associated with the institution) and by cooperation with different structures, theatres and festivals.

In this way, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS accompanies the emergence of new forms of art whose goal is to animate the space, create elective affinities between artists, artworks and public, while durably inscribing them in the city. As an alternative institution, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS believes in everyone’s creative potential and brings together artists, individuals, spectators, non-profit organisations, institutions and partner businesses in a unifying project.



A cultural venue for all

At the heart of the Flandre neighbourhood, at the symbolic boundary of the capital and its adjacent suburbs, in a territory with a wealth of different populations, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS is a public service artistic space.


It establishes direct and close links with the inhabitants, namely through Cinq (directed at amateur practices) and the Maison des Petits (devoted to the relationship between parents and children). Beyond its walls, it develops many collaborations with non-profit organisations, schools, social actors or neighbouring groups.

As a forum for the territory’s cultural dynamics and a space for dialogue with real society, it contributes to the establishment of a sustainable cultural policy. As an interstitial area sliding between geographies, genres and populations, the CENTQUATRE-PARIS looks to bring together and bring into question, in the presence of all of its “spectator-actors”, artists, creators, individuals, non-profit organisations, institutions and decision-makers.
