The Avignon Festival
Come and experience one of today’s major international celebrations of the contemporary performing arts: the Festival d'Avignon! Created by Jean Vilar in 1947 as a festival of theatre, over the years it has gradually opened to other arts such as dance and even the cinema, to attract an ever-wider public. A festival that never ceases to surprise and a must-visit event in July. Watch the many different performances, all part of an internationally renowned programme. Venues that vary from the totally unique to the city's mythical stages and plays that may be unknown to the public or major classics!
A festival certain to delight all the family, offering an opportunity to encounter artists from incredibly varied backgrounds and cultures, to watch their films or to discover an exhibition dedicated to their art. Brave the "fringe" and discover the rising stars of tomorrow, theatre companies that work in complete artistic freedom. A unique world to uncover. The atmosphere in the streets is joyous, filled with crowds of happy theatre-goers of all generations, discussing and sharing their passion. So don't miss this opportunity to explore the rich culture of the theatre, an art form as fascinating as it is captivating.
From 4 to 23 July, the actors, comedians, dancers and choreographers will thrill the public once again during this 73nd edition: Gustave Akakpo, Tamara Al Saadi, Roland Auzet, Alexandra Badea… and many others. Come and applaud them in their true element... on stage!
