New & Unmissable

New at the National center for theatrical costume and design!

Since 8 April 2023, the National Center for Theatrical Costume and Design offers a new exhibition space giving visitors an immersive look into the creation of a set design, from the initial design sketches to its installation. A building designed to look like an authentic theater!
Behind the scenes!

The visit begins in a projection room with an immersive experience offering visitors a chance to meet set designers of different generations and with different styles.

Next, the visitor is taken on a journey in three acts, through each step of the design process, from the first sketches to the first performances on stage.

This is where it all begins, sketch books, plans and models illustrate how the set designer works in the initial design phase.

La Scène is a semi-permanent space designed as an authentic and flexible theatrical experience that you will be able to discover and rediscover with each visit to the CNCS.
