One of the six national theaters with the Comédie-Française, the Odéon theater, the national theater of Chaillot, the national theater of the Opéra-Comique and the national theater of Strasbourg. It owes a lot to the work of Guy Rétoré who had directed the Théâtre de l'Est Parisian, ancestor of the Théâtre de Colline. It is under the impetus of its various directors (Jorge Lavelli, Alain Françon, Stéphane Braunschweig) that the theater today presents plays by living French or foreign authors with a highlighting on new scenic writings. In 2016, Wajdi Mouawad became director and focused his work on four main points: youth and territory, creation and diversity. The architecture of the building (an all-glass facade) is a metaphor for the commitment to opening up to the neighborhood and meeting with all audiences.
