Aurélie Filippetti, Minister of Culture and Communication, welcomes the launch of «l'Effet scènes», a week of action of the network of national stages, which takes place from 18 to 24 March 2013.

Across the country, 71 theatres demonstrate the diversity and commitment of artists and professionals to bring contemporary creation closer to audiences. This initiative underlines the importance and the need for concerted efforts by the State and local and regional authorities to promote access to works of the spirit for the greatest number of people.

On Sunday, March 24, the Minister will attend the performance of «Cachafaz», a contemporary opera by Oscar Strasnoy, inspired by a play by Copi and directed by Benjamin Lazar, at Theatre 71 in Malakoff.
