Directed by Anne Tanguy, the 2 Scènes were born from the merger, in 2012, of the Théâtre de l’Espace – located in the heart of a priority district of Besançon – and the Théâtre musical, located in the city centre. The first, which became L’Espace, has two modular spaces with 400 and 120 seats, and the second, Théâtre Ledoux, a 1,000-seat Italian-style theatre. The whole is completed by Le Kursaal, a hall made available by the city of Besançon, which hosts an “art et essai” film programme (more than 300 seats). Far from being an obstacle, this spatial distribution echoes the desire of the 2 stages to circulate audiences, to stir up aesthetics and to agitate ideas within a conurbation of 200,000 inhabitants
The challenge is also to multiply the times of meeting between artists and audiences, in the theatre or in the field, in order to make theatre a collective experience. Each season, more than 75,000 people are touched by the National Scene’s work.
