For the 20th edition, the Festival des 7 Collines offers once again a program open to diversity gathering committed artists from all around the world. Through our cherished plurisdiciplinarity we'd like to encourage out-of-the-way encounters in circus, dance, performance and music.
Since a few years the event gained a true notoriety among the notorious events of Rhône-Alpes. If the audience increases more each year, professionals and medias also follow the Festival with a true iinterest.
In this edition we'll be happy to discover out-of-the-way artistic propositions which challenge our relationship with the very idear of show and entertainment. We'll also be looking for a certain form of beauty.
Like Eric Joris, who makes us lose our marks in his virtual performances. Or like Franck Bölter who invites us in a strange cruise in his short-lived boat. We'll also meet the South-African Via Katlehong company for a time travel in a Johanesburg district. An ocasion to remind us that dance have been a wonderful form of resistance to the Apartheid. An exciting program to be discovered on stage on July 2nd.
We warmly thank the partners of the Festival for their complicity and their commitment without such an event couldn't exist. You're all invited to follow this 20th anniversary-edition we expect to be rich in emotions and sharings.
