"Promoting greater diversity on the stage" is the aim of Ier Acte, which for its fourth edition is partnering with Festival d'Avignon and the Odeon-Théâtre de l'Europe (Paris ).

The program offers fifteen selected young people a "spectator" course within the festival which will allow them to attend shows and meet artists present on the spot. They will also participate in a six-day intensive work session led by Olivier Py, director of the Festival d'Avignon, at FabricA in January 2018. A call for applications has been launched and an audition will be held at FabricA. Olivier Py will be a member of the selection board.
