This book chapter examines the place of â€˜theatreâ€™ in traditional indigenous culture in New Caledonia and considers the emergence of recent theatre in that country in the context of political and social developments. It looks at the question of â€˜dialogueâ€™ as a literary and social phenomenon in the light of a political performative document, the Noumea Accord. It also analyses the significance of the diverse theatrical spaces in New Caledonia and the place of â€˜theatreâ€™ in some recent Festivals.
