Mix Up #conteur en scène • Festival March in PARIS

March 12, 2020 Thursday,20:00    -    March 29, 2020 Sunday,18:00

Inspired by the World Storytelling Day, Mix Up is a French festival that promotes storytelling in new, experimental and multilingual forms. Compagnie du Cercle and its director Abbi Patrix started the festival in 2018 with a focus on staged storytelling in all its forms. In 2019 a second, international edition hosted 20 artists in 15 languages. This third edition gathers storytellers and musicians in original venues in Paris to celebrate human’s imagination in all its diversity. A beautiful journey in various styles revealed by an art form that blossom in Europe today.

There will be surprising encounters and beautiful companion ships. We will all along the festival question the meaning of wonder tales and the place they can have in our modern world. We shall host a roundtable discussion with the finest specialists to exchange on the subject of wonder tales and bring their vision of the function of these tales in our broken world and which stories will be told tomorrow. With the help of Fest, the European network, we have invited a french speaking Norwegian storyteller for a Scandinavian evening mixing film, music and stories on the theme of Women from the North. We will travel to Amazonia and Greece. We will listen to stories in the Dark. And then, Peer Gynt will lead us through an amazing experiment of sounds and words. We look forward to share this program that reflects the spirit of adventure that is enlightening us.
