O Come, All Ye Faithful: Bringing you culture at Christmas in spite of Covid-19


In our Christmas show we’re at the Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte juste outside of Paris for some festive French magic. If you recongise the castle and its grounds it might be from one of the 75 films shot there such as “Moonraker”, “Marie Antoinette” and “The Man in the Iron Mask”, starring Leonardo DiCaprio.This stunning château was also in the headlines a couple of years ago because of a €2 million heist.

To claim more rights for us and get to work, and so that spectators can attend the shows, there may be more justice"."Through this organization APSTE and APEFE that came together to sensitize the government and help companies to work and get them to take responsibility for the losses and the unemployed, etc"."We haven't had a job in Portugal for a year and a half. We are show, video, sound, lighting technicians, stage technicians, theaters ... we are all represented here"."They are not enough. The government does not consider cultural workers, and gives preference to other sides of the economy such as tourism. They have forgotten culture, we are here to remind the government that there are culture workers. A country without culture is not a country, it is something similar, it is a country without identity". "If it weren't for my boss, I wouldn't be able to eat because the state hasn't helped me. I have been working in my profession since I was 17 years old and from one moment to the next the government prohibits practicing my profession and leaves me unable to pay my bills. If it weren't for my boss who took on my salary, I wouldn't have been able to pay my bills, I want the government to help too, to work alone".
