Support for creation
The Festival supports creation. It provides long-term support to artists and companies at national and international level, through financial supportand/or residencies for research and creation.
Companies supported in 2014-2015
Cie Pseudonymo – France
Squid opens like a dreamlike bubble, a world outside the world, where the blurred boundaries between fascination and domination are tested. The company claims a theatre of illusion that nourishes its explorations in the heart of the anguish and chimeras of humanity.
Les Enfants Sauvages – France
“Nonna et Escobar”
For this creation, Alan Payon, who is very attached to “writings of the real”, interviewed his grandmother and drew from it an intimate and moving family mythology.
T1J – Belgique
A show in two parts that gives voice to migrants. In the form of a tragic tale, 4 artists give voice to the deafening silence of a refugee whose dream of freedom has come to rest on the beach of a “free” country.
Cie Les Ombres Portées – France
This show is a journey through a changing city, staged in a spectacular model. The company approaches creation in a collective and multidisciplinary way, mixing plastic arts, scenography, music and light.
Cie S’appelle Reviens – France
“Sous ma peau” /sfu.ma.to/
The sfu-ma-to is a pictorial technique of misty blur invented in the Renaissance. Music, words, bodies and materials offer a singular journey, where looking becomes a sensory experience, an optical walk through mirages in a museum.
Cie Arnica – France
“Ecris-moi un mouton”
Composed of three parts, this show, which looks back at the Algerian war, was created following meetings with young people in Marseille, St Priest, Charleville-Mézières and in Algeria.
Théâtre Incliné – Canada
“La Morsure de l’ange”
The Quebec company has an international reputation. It has enlisted the help of Italian master Fabrizio Montecchi for this latest creation, which tells the story of a son who engages in a duel with a double father.
Compagnie À – France
“Made in China”
In this show, the company stages objects “made in China” that are part of our daily lives and questions consumption, mass production, the relationship with the norm… all questions that are raised by the galloping globalisation.
Cie des Chemins de Terre – Belgique
A performance of physical theatre and object puppets against a background of invented languages and alternative choreography.
Bagages de sable – France
“Deux Vieilles Dames”
An adaptation for the stage of the story collection “Two Old Ladies” by the contemporary Dutch author Toon Tellegen, by three actors and a puppeteer, directed by Frank Soehnle.
