1977: Foundation of the International Visual Theatre (IVT), France

In 1976, the deaf American artist Alfredo Corrado went to France to work for the Nancy International Theater Festival. He meets Jean Grémion, French director already engaged in research on non-verbal theater.

Founded in 1977, IVT is currently directed by Emmanuelle Laborit since 2002, Jennifer Lesage-David since 2014.

First located at the Château de Vincennes, IVT has installed its theater since 2004 in the premises of the former Grand-Guignol in Paris. This socio-cultural center for the Deaf is for the deaf and for all persons or associations concerned with the world of deafness. It develops a broad cultural action through the creation and the theatrical production and counts many realizations, staged, interpreted by deaf and hearing professional actors.
