Chaillot Olympique

Chaillot Olympiques, in relation to the Paris 2024 events, offers schools a full day of art and culture education focused on “art and sport”, on the premises of the theater or elsewhere in the country and its overseas territories. The idea is that a high-level athlete enters into a dialogue with a guest artist and the middle and high school students who then discuss the topic of the day together. Recent topics include: “Exploring/pushing one’s limits through the Gaga method” with the artists of Ohad Naharin’s Batsheva Dance Company and “soccer, games and implications” with Pierre Rigal and the company Dernière Minute.
