Opéra de-ci de-là - Aix en juin - Festival d'Aix-en-Provence 2019

Opéra de-ci de-là seminar

June 15 2020 to June 16 2020

The Opéra de-ci de-là residency has been postponed until 2021. Nonetheless, around 20 selected artists, and creators will take part in a two-day seminar where they will have the time to reflect on the role of art in society today and how art can be used to respond in times of crisis. The two day seminar will foster the development of a multidisciplinary and multicultural debate which is an essential prelude to the creation phases of the session which will occur during the 2021 edition of the Festival. The seminar will be led by Anthony Heidweiller, the Opéra de-ci de-là tutor, and Frédérique Aït-Touati, theatre director and historian specialized in 17th century literature and modern science.
