The institute is more than ever at your side!

We take up the challenge of bringing French and Francophone culture to your home. In the spotlight this week, the live performances. Theater, music, dance, and more, there will be something for everyone!

Here is the program for the week :

Monday / Culture

This week we invite you to go to enjoy live performances while staying at home. We start with the theater, which occupies a very important place in the French cultural heritage.
