The unsung heroes who bring TV series to life

The exhibition BEHIND THE SCENES runs from March 16 to 22 at the Village Festival by Crédit Mutuel!

The strange tongues of the Dothraki in Game of Thrones, the cult dishes in Hannibal, the sharp teeth of a monster in Doctor Who or the realistic wounds in Hippocrates – none of this would exist without the men and women who work tirelessly on our favorite series.

Whether they’re a food stylist, a dental technician, a professional crier or a choreographer, they tell us, through a unique immersive exhibition, about the joys and challenges of their often little-known professions.

Conceived as a secret behind-the-scenes look at the small screen, the exhibition invites you to discover the careers of the wonderful artists who will be there to meet you, accompanied by strange creatures, dazzling costumes, sensory experiences and a few surprises!
