The mayoress of Avignon, Marie-José Roig, has offered the IRL a venue in the city centre for the project Avignon à la Catalane during the Avignon Festival, a sign of the city’s recognition of the Institut’s work within the Avignon le Off festival. She informed us of this last week during the reception that she offered to the artists of Avignon à la Catalane, the IRL representatives and Marta Almirall, director of the Barcelona Institute of Culture’s Festivals and Traditions department. The mayoress is offering this meeting place in one of the rooms next to the town hall in Place des Carmes throughout next year’s festival.
This acknowledgement will mean a boost for the brand name “Catalonia” within the festival, as it will showcase the project, which so far has taken about 15 companies to Avignon.
The second edition of Avignon à la Catalane has been held this year, an initiative of the Institut Ramon Llull within the Avignon le Off festival. This year’s programme features seven companies and also includes a dramatized reading. The aim is to show the public the richness of the contemporary Catalan scene, from theatre to performance, via circus, puppetry and dance. Just before the closure of this second edition, provisional estimated figures show an attendance of 4,016 spectators and 457 professionals, awaiting the closure of some shows that are billed to run until 31st July.
