Whilst in France in July 12, I was fortunate enough to be shown around Avignon by artist and performer Charlie Fox and to be able to attend several dance performances, exhibitions and a discussion within the main festival programme;
- Soyez les Bienvenues by artist Fanny Bouyagui (exhibition)
- Rachel, Monique by artist Sophie Calle (installation)
- Puz/zle by choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui (dance performance)
- Sakinan Göze Çöp Batar by choreographer Christian Rizzo (dance performance)
The OFF Festival accompanies the main programme and is huge, with 100’s of theatre, circus, cabaret and dance performances, and the streets of Avignon were crowded with visitors to the festival programmes.
