Would you like to step back in time and meet some of the world's leading personalities? That's what Sculpteurs de Rêves offers you with its brand new immersive experience, Cabaret Rive Gauche. Join us at the Musée Maillol from April 26, 2024, for a drink in the company of Boris Vian and Barbara!

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "printemps des poètes", Sculpteurs de Rêves presents a brand new immersive experience! Entitled Cabaret Rive Gauche, this experience, orchestrated in collaboration with Tempora and the Musée Maillol, brings to life the legendary cabaret on the Fontaine des Quatre Saisons, once run by the Prévert brothers from 1951 to 1956. From April 26 to June 29, 2024, the Musée Maillol, in the Café des frères Prévert to be precise, will be the setting for a fascinating journey back to 1951, when jazz, bebop and the spirit of Boris Vian reigned supreme.

The concept is based on a tried-and-tested formula appreciated by audiences at previous events such asApaches de Paris and Gatsby à Nice. Cabaret Rive Gauche stands out for its total immersion, combining theater, role-playing and live performance. Spectators, transformed into the actors of their own evening, are invited to interact with the eight actors portraying emblematic figures of the era, such as Boris Vian and Barbara. The experience is designed to be unique, leaving everyone free to immerse themselves at their own pace, between a large theatrical stage, live music and intimate workshops.

Beyond the cultural and entertainment aspects, the event has a strong historical and symbolic dimension. The choice of venue is not insignificant: the basement of the Musée Maillol, in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, is home to the Cabaret Rive Gauche, echoing the original cabaret of the Frères Prévert, once located on the first floor of the present-day museum. This reincarnation of an iconic venue, driven by the passion of Maël Magat, David Sabaté, Benjamin Vilnoy and Thibault Paquin, the creators of the experience, and the partnership with Tempora and the Musée Maillol, is an invitation to rediscover and celebrate a vibrant part of Parisian cultural history. Le Cabaret Rive Gauche promises a journey through time, combining art, history and conviviality, in the heart of an eternally artistic Paris. How about a reservation?
