Our team of four works for artists, companies and their projects in the fields of company management, touring, production and administration.
La Magnanerie deliberately chose to work with artists in different disciplines: dance, theatre, contemporary circus, but also projects of visual arts, in the public space, or on the scale of the territories.
We work on various projects: from vast dramatic productions aimed at playing in big venues to multimedia exhibitions and in-situ shows. In eight years, we gained diversified experience to the benefit of singular artistic adventures.
We handle the whole range of administrative tasks, the direction of the company management, production, touring and communication. We reflect together with the artists on their perspectives in: creating shows, developing cultural action, organizing workshops, residencies, educational projects… We build side by side long term partnerships with different funders (local governments, cultural institutions, programming venues, private foundations), from a national to an international scale.
Along your side, we ensure the direction of production of your project: from pondering on its feasibility to its undertaking and implementation.
We elaborate together a plan of distribution and communication strategies: from identifying partners to expending your network; personalised support to increase the visibility of your projects.
We handle the administrative structuration of your company, accounting and budget monitoring, grant files, salaries, cash flow, invoice and expense follow-up.
Through “advising appointments”, we go through your projects together in order to determine the best ways to structure it, put it into perspective, as well as study its feasibility, timing and development on an international scale. We can also train your administration, production and/or distribution teams for new tools in time orgnization, team building and professional communication.
We are willing to meet people who, like us, believe in the connection between artists, producers and international cultural venue. Through a process of sharing skills and mutualizing engagements we want MAG.I.C to be a hub for new cooperation.
