Factor E!

E is for Esprit de Corps. E is for Expressive Energy. E is for Essence, our essence. Without the E Factor! the story of the Education Service would be very different – everything we present over the course of the year happens directly or indirectly because of this group.

Musicians, actors, choreographers and other professionals form a multidisciplinary team with a lot of colour in its grey matter. They are our core of creative minds, educators, and achievers of reality and dreams. They are familiar with the stage as well as behind the scenes, they are co-creators of workshops and shows, inventive agents in communicating with the public.

E is also for Ensemble. Music, naturally, is in their bones. Together, they take on an artistic identity that establishes itself in the fusion of styles, the inclusion of diversity and openness to experimentation.

E is for Encounters, with you, today, tomorrow or another day, through one of our activities.
