Comedie de Caen

Comédie de Caen is a national dramatic center. Its main mission is the production of contemporary performances. In addition to our director's productions, we support French and European independent artists and companies. Jean Lambert-wild runs the theater since 2007 and develops here singular axes. Our programming is punctuated by important moments : our creations, our partnership with the Festival Les Boréales (multidisciplinary international festival about Nordic and Baltic cultures), performances of international artists, programming for young audiences, nomad scenes in the region, training and research workshops for performings arts professionals, and so on.

Comédie de Caen is subsidized by the Ministry of Culture / DRAC of Lower Normandy, the city of Caen and the city of Hérouville-Saint-Clair, the Regional Council of Lower Normandy and the Calvados General Council (ODACC ).

Comédie de Caen has two venues :
Théâtre d’Hérouville: a 700 seats venue with a large stage. Here are also located the administration, the technical services, the construction and costumes workshops.
Théâtre des Cordes : a 300 seats venue with a medium stage.
