Paris l’Eté Festival
The Paris l'Eté festival returns to Paris and its region from 11 to 31 July 2022.
Theatre, dance, circus, music, performances and plastic installations take over museums and monuments, schools, parks and gardens, museums, swimming pools, squares, churches… and reinvent our summer!
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, it is Angelin Preljocaj who opens the ball on 11 and 12 July with an exceptional revival of his Boléro de Ravel. This is a unique opportunity to discover the Cour Lefuel du musée, an architectural jewel from the Second Empire that is normally closed to the public. From 20 to 23 July**, the choreographer Fouad Boussouf will take over the lycée Jacques-Decour in the 9th arrondissement for a performance mixing influences from the French capital and Morocco. **Näss" brings together seven dancers from hip-hop, traditional Moroccan dance and contemporary circus. A bewitching rhythm!
The Dakh Daughters have left Ukraine for the time being, and on July 14, they will offer the spectacle of their fertile and enterprising anger through unbridled music and outlet on the stage of the théâtre Le Monfort in the 15th arrondissement of Paris (a part of the ticket sales will be donated to local associations for Ukraine).
The children will enjoy circus shows with, in particular, the aerial acrobatics of the CirkVOST group, which will perform from 15 to 17 July** 15 metres above the place de la fontaine aux Lions de la Villette. A show full of colour, music and thrills! We will also focus on the incredible performance of Frédéri Vernier and Sébastien Davis-Vangelder. Immersed in a giant aquarium set up on the Monfort stage, the two circassian apneists give an amazing performance.
Visual arts, puppets, virtual reality, performances, open-air installations … Once again this year, the artists of the Paris l'Eté festival challenge conventions and divert the public's habits to invite them to a unique and singular journey in an eco-responsible spirit.
