We all know that Nowism is the new movement in town. But sometimes, it’s a good idea to look back at what’s been said and done in the past.

If you’re ever in Paris, make sure you visit Théâtre de la Huchette. A tiny theatre that you’d never notice, cornered between gawdy tourist shops and restaurants along a narrow pedestrian street. I’ve never been in a smaller theatre space. It suits the subject matter to the tee. Can’t explain more. Just go.
Théâtre de La Huchette
23, rue de La Huchette 75005 PARIS
