ABOUT

History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Silvia Monfort

But who was this famous Silvia Monfort, after whom a theatre was named?

Not surprisingly, she was a great French actress who was born in Paris in 1923 and died in 1991. She was a member of the French Resistance, an actress, a novelist, a director and a theatre director. Silvia Monfort was one of the greatest interpreters of Racine's Phèdre.

 

The theatre that bears her name, the Théâtre Silvia Monfort, built in the heart of Georges Brassens Park, is now a genuine cultural venue with a rich and varied programme, resolutely oriented towards new authors and theatrical forms. Fans of both French and international theatre come here to discover directorial nuggets, visual shows and plays created by companies from all over the world. Added to this are the two plus points of the Théâtre Silvia Monfort, which on sunny days make it a place not to be missed: its green terrace and cosy bar, a real meeting place like no other in Paris.

 

Originally set up in the Marais under the name Carré Thorigny, the Théâtre Silvia Monfort as we know it today moved into the former abattoirs of Vaugirard in 1979. The current buildings were inaugurated in 1992. Discover this venue dedicated to contemporary creation and discovery, with a varied programme focusing on the diversity of genres and cultures. A theatre open to the world for the curious.
