The YPAL Encounters are coming back to Reims in 2022 !


Did you miss us? You too !

After two years without seeing each other, we announce that we will soon meet again. The human encounter is all we hoped for in this edition!

We are very happy to know that we will soon see each other again and meet for a weekend to live unforgettable moments together. Indeed, we are looking forward to being able to meet again outside of our screens from February 4 to 6, 2022. 

              What has changed since the 2021 edition?

During the 2021 edition, 60 participants were registered for the YPAL Encounters.  Among them, we had members of the Alter Ego (X) Company and those of the Giant Wolf Company, cultural professionals and students. They should come from all over Europe, and also from the world : Argentina, Belgium, Denmark, France, Georgia, India, Ireland, Italy, Spain, Switzerland…

As a result of the health crisis, the Encounter 2021 was quickly transformed into a virtual meeting held on the Zoom platform with 22 participants aged 18 to 30 years old from 5 different nationalities : Belgium, France, Ireland, Italy and Spain. This gave rise to workshops, the diffusion of a spectacle, an artistic meeting… 

                                 What about the 2022 encounters?

We will meet again from February 4 to 6, 2022 at the FARaway – Festival des Arts à Reims.

Some occasional meetings could be held before and after this festival weekend in order to animate the network as well as our Encounter of this year.

These YPAL meetings exist thanks to the support of La Comédie de Reims, Centre Dramatique National and FARaway – Festival des Arts à Reims. The latter gathers 7 cultural institutions of Reims La Cartonnerie, Césaré, La Comédie de Reims, Le FRAC, Le Manège, Nova Villa and l’Opéra de Reims..

We wish to make this YPAL 2022 Encounter a moment of reunification where we must all have a sense of contact.

                                 Where to register ?

Now that everything has been said, we hope to see as many of you as usual.

The online inscriptions are opening in the next few days…

The participation is free. The Comédie de Reims will pay for the tickets, the catering, the accommodation for the non-recipients as well as the transportation costs.

N.B.: The Comédie de Reims does not cover the transportation costs of those who come from the department of: the Marne, the Aisne, the Ardennes, the Aube, the Haute-Marne as well as the Ile-de-France region.
