“The Great Escape”, in Calais, from 29 September to Sunday 3 October 2021 – Free

Invited by the Scène Nationale Le Channel, Royal de Luxe will be back in Calais from 29 September to 3 October 2021 with a new imaginary situation: "The Great Escape".

An original artistic proposal, resolutely inscribed in Calais and for Calais.
Over the course of the day, you will be able to indulge in a permanent theatrical contemplation, for a few minutes only or for many hours, as you wish. On the elevated exterior of the Bourse du Travail, you will be shown the daily life of friendly and pleasant convicts*, crossed by the imagination of the Royal de Luxe, and the genius of its creator, Jean-Luc Courcoult. It’s up to you to discover them, to scrutinise their actions, to spot the thousand and one details of their world. And, who knows, you might adopt them?

*Their story is drawn from the history of a square that a man named Crèvecœur bequeathed to the town in perpetuity in the 19th century, on the sole condition that a weekly market be held there.


From Wednesday 29 September to Saturday 2 October 2021
Permanent every day from 10am to 6pm

Wednesday 29 September and Sunday 3 October : without comedians

Location: Bourse du travail, place Crèvecoeur in Calais
