Current events in Provence
In July, Avignon is on stage: make room for festivals!
From july 4th to 27th
Founded by Jean Vilar in 1947, the "Festival d'Avignon" is one of the oldest and most famous theatre festivals in the world. The Avignon Theatre Festival presents contemporary European creations during three weeks in July. This 68th edition is, for the very first time, in the hands of Olivier Py, the new director of the Avignon Festival. The Festival is a crossroads for exploring artists from many different backgrounds, aesthetics, origins and generations. It is both a source of avant garde discoveries and reference works, offering more than fifty different shows in twenty venues ranging from small chapels to the legendary Honour Courtyard in the Palace of the Popes, or the brand new FabricA.
