Moulins - France
The rehabilitation of the former stables of Quartier Villars houses the permanent exhibition “La Scène”, conceived as a workshop for experimenting with theatrical scenography by three complementary scenographers:
. Adeline Rispal from Ateliers Adeline Rispal, exhibition design,
. Mathieu Lorry-Dupuy, stage designer,
. Félix Lefèbvre from Kanju, exhibition equipment design.
The exhibition explores scenographic creation in 3 acts – from the idea to its realization – by showing the backstage and the work of the many people involved in this ecosystem: scenographers, set designers, the decoration construction trades and the scenic trades.
Each year, the exhibition integrates an exemplary scenography: that of Eric Ruf for the creation of Cyrano de Bergerac at the Comédie française opens the way: sketches and models are exposed in the center of Act I, and the elements of the set are installed on the stage in Act III.

Rehabilitation of the heritage and exhibition design of the permanent exhibition
The stables of the former Villars barracks, classified as a Historic Monument and which houses the main CNCS building, close off its place of arms to the south.
The purpose of their rehabilitation is to restore the facades to the spirit of the original building, which was not very pierced on the ground floor due to its use. A curved stainless steel airlock, with shapes inspired by theatrical architecture, signals the entrance to visitors coming from the main building.
The exhibition on theatrical scenography is set up on the ground floor in three distinct spaces of increasing ceiling height, preceded by a virtual encounter with the actors of this ecosystem on the essence of the scenography:
It is the fruit of close collaboration between the theatre set designer Mathieu Lorry-Dupuy, the Kanju equipment set designer and the exhibition set designers from Ateliers Adeline Rispal, as a “mise en abîme” for the benefit of visitors, students and professionals.
Much more than a simple interpretation centre, it is a space conducive to experimentation, a laboratory for scenographic creation that shows the other side of the coin.
This capable space, designed with an economy of means, will host both objects and collections from the CNCS’s major partner institutions and, periodically, a focus on the creation of a great scenographer.
Additional reserves occupy the two upper levels and integrate all the constraints of preventive conservation of the CNCS’s rich collections of stage costumes.
