Workshop 2016-2017: A tragic ball in Calais


In this second edition of the Comédie-Française workshop series (part of the Paris-Nanterre Master's of Theater program), students from Harvard University and the CFG's (Centre de Formation des Journalistes) école W joined students in from the host program in Paris. Their goal: to create a multimedia learning tool to explore the cultural, social, and political circumstances and events that led Pierre-Laurent de Belloy to write Le Siège de Calais, one of the lesser known plays in the Comédie-Française repertory.

The final product : "Bal tragique à Calais."

This workshop, coordinated by T. Karsenti et S. Guyot, was a part of the Idéfi-CréaTIC initiative, and was funded in part by the Partner University Fund
