Lost kingdoms and frozen conflicts, melting pots and museum pieces, grey areas between the black and white of competing nationalisms… Welcome to Marchland, Théâtre Volière’s ongoing project programming and creating performance and interdisciplinary events from and about Europe’s borderlands.
We are an Anglo-French theatre and production company from Strasbourg, capital of Alsace; Europe’s crossroads, and one of its many borderlands with a rich and turbulent history.
Marchland is our response to the crises of identity currently sweeping Europe. Each year we are creating, programming and commissioning a series of events in which many traditions can come together and ask: What can the voices from Europe’s liminal spaces, past and present, tell us about what it means to be European today?
Welcome to the crossroads. Welcome to Marchland.
