the association On the way to the abbey of Saint Evroult in Ouche (Orne) was contacted by the Abbeys of Normandy to organize activities, “leaving the association free to do what it wanted”, explains Catherine Hauepresident of the association Sur les chemins de l’abbaye de Saint-Evroult.

Silence, like the Benedictines

The activities will take place in the great hall of the abbey of October 26 to 30“it allows us to bring life to this large hall of the abbey, which will be a place of exhibition, a place of meditation and then for an hour, a theatre”.

The idea for this theme came during a discussion “while visiting the Abbey of Saint-Nicolas de Verneuil. The abbey of Saint-Evroult is a Benedictine abbey and you should know that the Benedictines take a vow of silence”. The association then sought to join forces to offer a rich program.

The objective was that several good wills propose to Saint-Evroult, a moment of culture, meeting, around several disciplines.

In this program which must evoke silence, it is ambitious to stage a work of Jules Verne, but “after many adventures, this story ends in silence” notes the actor and tries not to say too much. Always with a view to exchange and sharing, the show will be followed by a moment of sharing.
