Started in France, on the island of Ré, in 2009, this francophone theatre festival has been held at Grand-Baie since 2014. Besides the shows in competition, produced by companies from the Comoros, Senegal, Madagascar, and Switzerland, there's a new children's theatre section called, surprisingly, the ‘Festival Kids'. Almost everything is in French, but there is a bilingual adult theatre workshop, in English and French. Alongside the performances, there is a playwriting contest open to writers from throughout the Indian Ocean.
