Program for 2013/2014

On May 4th at the New York Society for Ethical Culture there was a tribute honouring

James Hillman

Forty friends, poets, philosophers, teachers, musicians, dancers, singers, analysts, actors, grandchildren and his barber came together to create a moving piece of theatre in celebration of

His life     His Thought     His Art

For over three hundred people it was a beautiful event with a lot of laughter and a lot of tears. Even those of us, who had known him for a long time were amazed and inspired once again by the depth and consistency of that life, thought and art.

Roy Hart Theatre and the CAIRH are greatly indebted and inspired by him – Thanks James.

Open Day

The new season at Malérargues is launched!

See the video of the Open Day

When we arrived in Malérargues in 1974 it was a ‘Sleeping Monster’ complete with bats, mice and spiders. Two streams ran through in wet weather. This spring we are restoring the ‘last ruin’ to become a studio apartment for guest teachers, artists in residence and students from all over the world.

The Magnanerie theatre has been brought up to the latest security norms. There is new sound and light equipment, which will allow us to offer more and better public performances.

The summer will be hot, alive and full, so don’t hesitate. But the spring is beautiful and calm. See the programmes.

The New Season at Malérargues

On the 22nd of March Roy Hart Teacher Walli Höfinger, and Artist in Residence Louise Desbrusses will present their solo contributions for the Deborah Hay choreography, “I Think Not”.

We are inviting our friends and cultural partners from the region to join us for the evening and we would love to see as many of you that can make it.

On the following Saturday 31 March we will have an Open Doors Day – ‘Une Journée Portes Ouvertes’; a chance to share Malérargues itself and the new season’s programme of activities with our friends, our cultural partners and especially our close neighbours. There will be a buffet and guided tours of the centre.

The Teacher Training Group starts the day before and I hope that this important activity might be a focus. Teachers Christiane, Susanne, Edda and Walli will have been working on their ‘Voicelines’ project that week and will show their work-in-progress. There will also be presentations of some of the current artistic projects at Malérargues.

Please come and join us for either, or both of these events.

The programme of workshops for 2012 is online.

James Hillman, good friend and great inspiration to Malérargues died at his home in Thompson, Connecticut on the 27 October.

New Season, New Site

The new spring season opens in April with new projects, new floors in the studios, even some new beds in the gîtes, new website, a new generation of teachers and most of all a new direction.

A totally new website: Thanks to the ingenuity, hard work and generosity of many members: Here it is, the new web site! Faster, more logical, easier to use with many new functions and features. Take a tour in it, enjoy it – and let us know what we got wrong.
