The Montmartre Dionysia Labs are a production house, that celebrates English-language theatre in Paris.
We bring together emerging theatre artists in Paris to write, direct, perform, collaboratively create new and exciting English language works for audience in Paris, and beyond.
Stemming from the Montmartre Dionysia festivals that showcased emerging playwrights in Paris, the organisation has developed into a creative platform that accompanies the creative process of its theatre makers.
Since its inception the Montmartre Dionysia has produced over 30 plays by over 20 playwrights. From the living room of a Parisian appartment (featured in The Guardian) to a boat on the river Seine, the festival has played at venues big and small across the capital.
