This unmissable festival of street theatre opens the summer season in Limoges.  The photographic cooperative PHOTOLIM87 of which I am a member is in partnership with the festival to cover the events, so I went to Limoges with photo colleagues the evenings of wednesday 28, thursday 29 and friday 30th and saw many fine performances (and one or two less fine).



Firstly the ++.  For amazing visual spectacle it has to be group ENVOL, dance, art of fire and music : simply incredible.  For serious theatre/mime I loved Cie Claire Ducreux, "Avec le temps", she plays a newly blind dancer with her partner who helps as best he can.  Elegant and moving, but also amusing at times, very special.

Then a --.  #be, friday evening.  Announced as contemporary dance, what I saw was crude, random movements accompanied by a noise that frightened the dogs in the crowd.  Sorry, but I did not like it at all, neither did my friends.

Between these two extremes I watched, photographed and enjoyed numerous and varied performances of high quality.  Bravo the Urbaka team.
