Welcome to the Centre Artistique International ROY HART

Since 1974 the Château de Malérargues, founded by the Roy Hart Theatre, has been a unique venue for exchange, teaching, training and creation. Established since 1991 as the Centre Artistique International Roy Hart (Roy Hart International Art Centre), it welcomes artists, students, educators, and curious souls from all over the world, who come to find unique approaches to voice, body, movement, and psychology, applicable not only in the performing arts but also in everyday life. The work at the Centre is based on a history of almost 100 years of research, study and practice of the human voice without boundaries.

Many thanks to Véronique for her commitment and tireless dedication to the association over the course of her two-year presidency.
