DVDFrench3 subtitles languages

Through key moments and shows that have marked the history of the Avignon Festival, this film offers a panorama of this creative festival representing the theatre of its time according to the claim made by Jean Vilar. The collective memory of the festival is strong with some memories of delicate and polemical artistic experiences and innovations. However, Avignon has succeeded in achieving an agreement between a style inspired by popular theatre and the maintenance of an aesthetic requirement, which has contributed to its international renown and the training of audiences. For the 60th anniversary of the festival, this documentary carries out an essential and ambitious reflection on the notion of artistic radicality in view of the conceptual and aesthetic battles that have been the crucible of reflections and passions around the performing arts.
