The 360° Project
International Network of Round Arts Venues


Circular venues represent an exceptional architectural and scenographic heritage, although their unique shape often leaves them isolated and unknown.
This realization, along with a first series of informal meetings he initiated throughout Europe, brought Director of La Comète Philippe Bachman and his peers to create a network connecting these venues in an effort to enhance their unique nature, common exchanges and projects: The 360° Network.


The idea of a network connecting round venues with an artistic purpose was born in 2005, during Robert Lepage's visit to the circus of Châlons-en-Champagne when invited by Philippe Bachman, recently named director of  Scène nationale La Comète.



The founding members represent six countries: France, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Denmark, Spain and Croatia. The founding members set the calendar, work timelines and decide agendas for meetings. They each act as ambassador to the network. They also choose the artists who will be commissioned by the network.

The 360° Network’s objective is to communicate actively on the original and exceptional heritage of round artistic venues on a national and international scale. The main goal consists of reconciling the specific characteristics of these spaces and the artistic creation in all disciplines of the performing arts.


The 360° Network was initiated and is coordinated by La Comète, Scène nationale de Châlons-en-Champagne, the director of which is Philippe Bachman.
