Covid-19 information : a health pass or a test taken within the last 48 hours is required at the entrance.
In this very special summer season, it is a real pleasure to see the Paris l'Eté festival again in Paris and the region.
A true digest of visual pleasures combining dance, theatre, cirque and music, the festival returns in 2021 to the delight of lovers of live shows. Despite the current constraints, Paris l'été offers you the cream of artistic creation to (re)give you the desire to leave your home to feast your eyes and your heart.
The programme once again lives up to its promise with original performances, unusual discoveries, poetic moments and spectacular installations. Experiences rich in emotion to be shared and shared with others.
It would be difficult to unveil the entire programme, but here are a few highlights to include in your summer agenda.
In Paris, on the dance side, the Pyramid of the Louvre welcomes the choreographer Fouad Boussouf for an ode to joy, while Olivier Dubois takes over the Lycée Jacques-Decour in the 9th arrondissement for a performance mixing influences from the French capital and Cairo.
The children can be found around circus shows, notably the creation FIQ! which revisits the art of circus by adding break dance, taekwondo and footfreestyle acts, or around theatrical performances at La Villette or Plateaux sauvages in the north-east of the capital.
And that's not all. A Rollerdance Party, visual experiences, readings, installations and dance shows will punctuate your summer with enchanting interludes for the whole family. Also noteworthy on 24 and 25 July, a series of cultural excursions for new experiences around tightrope walkers, suspended performances, painting concerts, magic cruises and red-nosed clowns.
In the suburbs, you can see the horses of Bartabas at the Manège de la Grande Ecurie of the château de Versailles and in Aubervilliers.
In the mood for nature? The Festival takes you to the countryside at the Moulin Jaune de Crécy-la-Chapelle, a listed garden, to discover the spellbinding music of the Dakhabrakha and the circus performances of Yoann Bourgeois as well as the famous Slava's snowshow presented for the first time outdoors!
Once again this year, the artists of the Paris l'été festival will be shaking up conventions and diverting the public's habits to invite them to a unique and singular journey in an eco-responsible spirit.
