L'HEXAGONE SCÈNE NATIONALE ARTS SCIENCES
Located in Meylan, Isère (France), Hexagone has been a “Scène nationale” since 1989 with a mission to support artistic production and to promote performing arts.
It is an established, artistic production venue of nation-wide reference in the fields of contemporary culture : theatre, dance, music, circus and other emerging forms of art.
it brings to stage and bridges different artistic forms giving priority to contemporary productions.
it contributes to its territory’s (city, department and region) cultural development focusing on new ways of experiencing artistic productions thereby allowing a better integration of art in society.
It has developed a research mission which is incorporated in its contract of objectives for the past four years and it has been brought to life in organizing the Rencontres-i Arts Sciences Biennale and today in the launch of a joint research laboratory with CEA, the Atelier Arts Sciences. This last activity is the result of various interconnected experiences realized during the past few years.
The Hexagone team operates with eighteen staff members and hosts over a hundred shows per year in its 560 seat auditorium with over 30,000 spectators per season from all around the Grenoble area and sells around 2000 season’s tickets.
Two team members are particularly committed to the arts-sciences activity and they work mainly in the offices of Minatec IDEAs Laboratory®.
