Festival d’Avignon

Festival Avignon

The great Festival d’Avignon is guided this year by associate artist Wajdi Mouawad.
You can see his hand in the premiere of Photo-Romance by Lebanese directors Lina Saneh and Rabih Mroué, who have created a piece that explores art in the reality of a Beirut torn apart by conflict. Pippo Delbono (listen to our interview) returns to Avignon to direct La Menzogna, described as a “long cry with multiple intensities”.
The separately organized Festival Off has its genesis in the tumultuous year of 1968 in France, when students took to the streets. Now you can catch the spirit — see live theatrical events throughout the streets of Avignon.

If jam bands and indie rock are your thing this week, get ready for Rothbury Festival in Michigan. Maybe the coffee and croissants aren’t as good as Avignon’s, but you’ll be helping Michigan thrive for the next round of new cars!
