One Institute, several missions

The Institut International de la Marionnette, a French institution with an international vocation, was founded in 1981. Its creation has gone hand in hand with a profound and lasting evolution of the arts of puppetry.

This place of encounters, teaching and reflection develops its activities in service of training, research and creation. Its singular history and the diversity of its missions make it the only establishment of its kind in France and a reference centre whose expertise is recognised worldwide.
