Festival Voix d'Ameriques becomes Phenomena, moves to October 2012

Created date

Feb 17

Festival PHENOMENA — from October 19 to 26, 2012 Produced by Les Filles électriques Artistic direction: D. Kimm

After 10 years of exploration and innovation, the Festival Voix d’Amériques (FVA) has reinvented itself and adopted the name PHENOMENA. This festival will be a privileged space for atypical approaches, singular voices, and interdisciplinary or outsider artists.

PHENOMENA will give greater emphasis to the poetic and will not be solely based on the spoken word. It will widen its exploratory range to reflect the diversity of practices that drive the underground cultural milieu. PHENOMENA is interested in the poetry of places, materials, techniques and processes, and it invites artists from all disciplines to explore the poetic in their creations. PHENOMENA will present a mix of traditional performance techniques (shadow theatre, tableaux vivants, object theatre, cabaret, magic) and modern technologies, in order to offer hybrid, fantastical and unclassifiable creations that maintain their authenticity and emotional resonance.
