Festival Hautes Tensions at La Villette
A new festival at La Villette opens next week, and presents a high-energy mix of hip-hop and other new urban dance forms and contemporay circus. Innovative performances from many French companies, but also contemporary circus from Finland, German breakdancers and puppeteers from the Congo, and including some free outdoor events on the weekends. We’re looking forward to the ‘immersive performance’ by Catalan choreographer Roger Bernat/FFF, ‘Domini Public’, or Public Domain, dispenses with the actor and makes the audience the only participant. The spectators become part of a fiction without the need of exposing themselves as individuals on a stage (Sat 16-Sun 17 Apr). More info, in French, and the complete program here.
Wed 6-Sun 17 Apr.
performances Wed-Sat, 7pm & 9pm: Sun 3.30pm & 5pm.
