The summer workshops proposed by the Institut International de la Marionnette are high-level professional workshops. The courses are aimed at professionals, who are selected through a proposal and on their previous work. The participants in these courses are chosen from all over the world. The choice of tutors and students creates a mix between diverse artistic disciplines, to explore puppetry in relation to other art forms. A show is organised at the end of each residency. This program is financed by the Regional Council Champagne-Ardenne.
