Aix-en-Provence - Cultural place
C'est un " autre lieu " de culture, un tiers-lieu, un lieu intermédiaire, appelez-ça comme vous voulez,... c'est l'Ouvre-Boîte ! C'est surtout un lieu d'artistes, géré par des artistes, avec la participation espérée du public, de sympathisants, de bénévoles.
Avant tout, on y fabrique des spectacles.
On peut y être accueilli en résidence de création.
On peut y voir des répétitions ouvertes.
On peut y expérimenter des formes nouvelles.
On peut y assister à un débat sur la culture ou sur des enjeux de société.
C'est un lieu où l'art se décloisonne.
C'est un lieu ouvert au quartier.
