Experiences in atypicals venues
Through the Experiences, we aim to highlight today’s digital creativity as much as tomorrow’s electronic experiments and inventive machinery. An open space of the festival, a laboratory of artistic innovations conducive to the discovery of experimental forms in atypical places in Rennes.
Push the doors of a Protestant temple, let yourself be carried away by a poetic performance at the Parliament of Brittany or the Lices market, attend a concert at the Fine Arts Museum… Several unexpected experiments to discover between 5 and 14 October 2018 with Andreas Trobollowitsch, Saudaá Group, Joasihno, Jason Sharp & Adam Basanta, Flavien Berger, Marc Melià, Octave Courtin, Emilie Levienaise-Farrouch…
Joasihno during Maintenant 2018 is supported by SHAPE platform, an initiative co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
