The musée du quai Branly pays particular attention to current non-western artistic and cultural activities through the performances that it hosts, where traditional, contemporary and urban approaches intertwine. 

The Claude Lévi-Strauss Theater includes three complementary and inseparable spaces: the auditorium, the foyer and the open-air theatre. These spaces can be adjusted thanks to the curtain designed by Issey Miyake. The spaces are at your disposal when they are not required by the Museum's cultural program.

auditorium

 

Auditorium

The auditorium has a fully-equipped stage and a large seating capacity. The theatre curtains, acquired with the support of Saint-Gobain, are one of the powerful features of the space. Designed by Issey Miyake in 2006, they allow you to play with the light, by isolating the auditorium from the rest of the hall.

This space is ideal for lectures, seminars, meetings, prize ceremonies, general assemblies, etc. The stage can host performances – events, concerts or shows.

 

Capacity: up to 390 people (frontal – southern tiers) + 11 disabled spaces 
up to 490 people (bi-frontal - southern tiers + northern tiers) + 11 disabled spaces

Stage area: 160 m2

Level: JB (-2)

Availability: daily, daytime and/or evening, depending on the museum’s cultural programme
