Le grand ménage de Printemps - Festival des Arts
5th year of the South Luberon Arts Festival in Public Spaces
at Cucuron, Vaugines and Cadenet.
"The festival where you take the time to have time"
This festival transforms the streets and squares of three villages in southern Luberon into open-air stage settings, like at the theatre, leaving a strong impression of the place on one's memory, and loading it with new feeling. Café terraces are packed, streets are thronged, performers all play to a full house... Spring has arrived!
This locally initiated project brings together professional artistes and volunteers, including many local residents, whose combined strength and sense of community form the heart and soul of this event. The festival moves around between the three villages, Cucuron, Vaugines and - since 2018 - Cadenet, with the roaming installations inviting spectators to re-interpret public spaces.
The festival also takes a very stringent artistic line, with bold and contemporary programming from both established creators of art in the public realm and up-and-coming new professionals, including many regional companies. These artistic projects have a profound connection to the place where they're performed.
