The Open Source Body festival will take place in Paris at Gaîté Lyrique, La Paillasse, Center for Research and Interdisciplinarity (CRI) and echOpen.

A former opera house converted into a multidisciplinary creative space, La Gaîté is located in the heart of Paris, a 10-minute walk from the Centre Pompidou. It is now a prime venue for the convergence of art, innovation and digital media.
Transgression through acting, immersion through images, obsession through music and questionning gender identity are the guiding words of a program that allows wonder, learning and transmission.
Both nomadic and sedentary, La Gaîté Lyrique is the canvas on which music, theatre, visual arts, video games and any form of artistic expression think and draw tomorrow's world.
A place of art but also a place to live, where you can eat and have a drink at the bar, study at the ressource center, and appreciate a concert, a debate or a projection in a one day time.
