In a combined effort to promote contemporary theatrical writing and to uphold the legacy of the last of the “big little stages” in the Latin Quarter the association Les Amis du Théâtre de la Huchette (Friends of the Théâtre de la Huchette) was formed in April 2006.
In this capacity:
- The readings of the Huchette have helped promote nearly 150 texts by contemporary playwrights, of which more than thirty have been produced or are in development at the Théâtre de la Huchette or in other theatres.
- The association has digitized all of the theatre’s archives (21,000 documents) available on demand to students, researchers, journalists, and theatre enthusiasts.
- Created the travelling exposition The Théâtre de la Huchette.
- Co-produced the experimental photographic organizational chart 57/60 directed by Gauthier Fages, based on an idea by Armel Delorme and with the participation of the actors that have been a part of the Ionesco Show since 1957.
- Contributed to the making of several documentaries on the theatre or its notable figures (George Vitaly, Nicolas Bataille etc…), as well as Thomas Devouge’s short film Mrs Smith (winner of the best director award at the 2013 short film festival “Mulhouse tous courts”).
- Published the book Le fabuleux roman du Théâtre de la Huchette with Editions Gallimard.
- Contributed to the exposition on the Théâtre de la Huchette presented by the Biblioteque National de France (National Library of France) made up from the archives bequeathed by the theatre.
