The Autumn Festival in Paris is back for the 43rd year running. From September through to December, this four month long festival encompasses opera, film, dance and performing arts. With a jam packed schedule there’s something on pretty much every day for the last quarter of 2014. Think big, think bold and think a bit barmy.
Kicking off on the 5th September with Sylvain Creuzevault’s The Capital and his Monkey, an adaptation of Karl Marx’s The Capital, as well as contemporary dance spectaculars by William Forsyth and Jone San Martin – the season starts with a bang!
Among the many genres of performances, the calendar is divided into Visual Arts, Performances, Theatre, Dance, Music and Cinema. There’s a wide variety of theatre from re-runs of classic scripts, to off-the-wall contemporary debuts, while on the dance scene there are four ballet performances directed by William Forsyth among a dozen others that explore the more modern dance movements.
In the music sector opera prevails with Luigi Nono taking centre stage and where cinema is concerned, there are two key films showing this season, Bonello’s Resonances and Duras’ Filmmaker.
