Aurillac, Cantal department
23 - 26 August 2017
Every year, in the third week of August, the city of Aurillac morphs into the international capital of street theatre, hosting over 400 companies using all forms of expression: bizarre installations, sensational machinery, fantastical characters, revisited circus shows, new forms of performing arts or opera…
The most internationally well-known festival in the Auvergne is a proud celebration of street performance taking place all around Aurillac and in neighbouring villages. Performances of classical or modern plays, puppet shows, performance art, circus, dance, poetry… The Aurillac festival offers a mind-blowingly wide and eclectic selection of shows.
Alongside the official Aurillac festival programme, you can enjoy a large number of spontaneous street performances. A total number of about 500 companies will be livening up the streets of Aurillac.
Can’t wait? The Aurillac festival offers a “pre-programme”. Before the festival, companies featuring in the festival’s official programme will be performing in the area.
