The Théâtre de la Colline, located a stone's throw from the Père-Lachaise cemetery, is one of six national theaters. Today, its programming focuses on modern plays from the 20th and 21st centuries.

The Théâtre de la Colline, located at 15 rue Malte Brun in the 20th arrondissement of Paris, was inaugurated in 1988. A new theater, it replaces the former Théâtre de l'Est Parisien, following a decision by Jack Lang, Minister of Culture at the time.

The theater is housed in a modern building designed by architect Claude Parent. The building offers versatile performance spaces and state-of-the-art technical facilities. Jorge Lavelli is appointed director of the theater on its inauguration, and his vision is for the theater to be dedicated to "the creation and discovery of the expressions of our century". After three terms, several directors succeeded him, and the theater is now under the direction of Wajdi Mouawad since 2016.

The Théâtre de la Colline is renowned for its programming of innovative contemporary creations in experimental forms. Internationally renowned artists have performed at the Théâtre, including German director Thomas Ostermeier. Emerging companies are also represented at the Théâtre, offering audiences a variety of theatrical creations in a 750-seat auditorium .

The Théâtre de la Colline, with its innovative and experimental plays, awaits you at 15 rue Malte Brun.
