Vincent Tavernier

 Artist, director producer, artistic director... Vincent Tavernier is the man behind the Nuits Baroques and Les Malins Plaisirs.


It all started in 1988! Whilst the theatre of Montreuil-sur-Mer re-opens its doors, Vincent Tavernier seeks the ideal place to create an artists’ residence.

“Montreuil-sur-Mer was the ideal venue for our project,” he reminisces, "with its Italian-style theatre, historical heritage, and more.”

The Malins Plaisirs festival is a major event for theatre enthusiasts which began in 1989. The selected works, in French only, reflect French lifestyle, from the Middle Ages to current times.

The 2017 festival dates are 11 to 20 August.



Located on the square “du Grand Marché”, the Montreuil-sur-Mer theatre replaced the granary in the 19th century. It is an “Italian-style” theatre.
