History and Archives of the Festival



The 2013 theme will be dedicated to SPRIT(s) plural.

In 334 BC a statue of Orpheus was found drenched in sweat, in Pieria, Macedonia. For the deviner Aristander of Telmessos this prodigy meant that poets and singers would have to toil and sweat in order to account for and celebrate the exploits of the Macedonian prince who had just been born: Alexander the Great.

2013 : it is time for the 20th century to close its accounts, especially the results of its scientistic skepticism. We must call on Orpheus for a thorough revision of the nature and imp-act of SPIRIT(s) - I am refering to the boundaires of spirituality, psyche, imagination, emotions and dreams. In other words, fiction and performance as the laboratories of mind : SPIRIT(s). Given the residual resistance, we will have to sweat hard!   E.P.
