“La criée” Theater

Hi Everyone !

Today, I’m going to talk about a place: The “La criée” Theater. “La Criée” was the place where the fish was roughly sold on the “Vieux Port” of Marseille. We can read it the inscription ” Criée libre aux poissons” which means “Shouted free in fishes ” on the entrance of the building. Today, this building shelters a theater, the national Theater of Marseille, which has the status of national arts center for theater.

It was established in May, 1981 and is situated “30 quai de rive neuve” in Marseille:


It composed of two rooms of 800 and 250 places which were fitted out according to scenographic searches favoring the relationship spectators / actors thanks to the abolition of the traditional lowering between the scene and the room and by the implementation of certain technical subtleties:

salle 1


Approximately 32 people are permanent employees, but the theater appeals in of numerous occasional during its creations.

For the followers of speaking of Marseille:

  •   Expression with “bras cassé”:

« Ma femme c’est un vrai bras cassé » means that his wife is not gifted
