The Cloître des Carmes has been one of the magical places of the Festival d'Avignon since 1967. It hosted over 160 shows in its premises. How do the artists use this heritage setting to imagine the scenography and share their universe with the audience? Following the symposium organized by the Avignon University on June the 5th, 2018, the BnF branch at the Maison Jean Vilar proposes a selection of documents illustrating the rich aesthetic and theatrical history of the Cloître des Carmes. © Lunayka, d’après Angélica Liddell au Cloître des Carmes en 2016

Even in 2014,…

Cabu, who was known and recognised for his illustrations in Hara-kiri, Charlie Hebdo, or the Canard Enchaîné, also used his talents as an exceptional cartoonist to sketch the world of theatre.

He was a passionate theatre-goer - private and publicly funded theatres alike -  but with a particular attachment to the Comédie-Française. Cabu first went to the Festival in 1970, when it was still directed by Jean Vilar. He was a regular visitor, as testified by his sketchbooks. Year after year, Cabu was there to cast his…

Artist welcomed at the House Jean Vilar from tuesday to sathurday from 11h to 18h  from the 29th september tu the 21th octobor Charlotte Gunsett "Childhood is at the heart of Charlotte Gunsett's work. We could say a starting point. The clumsy gestures of childhood, the representations we make of them are digested and interpreted by this young artist through her sculptures. Her universe is elaborated by fragments of memories. She touches with her fingers these fleeting, perishable, ephemeral moments in order to give them a moment of eternity. The sand can both be solid and erect in architecture, as it…

An exhibition of Macha Makeïeff Entrer dans une maison pour être moins perdue. La lumière, l’effroi, l’enfance, la rêverie, embarquer les choses recueillies, faire un récit fantaisiste. Et les petites filles imaginaires dans cette maison auront tous les droits, les désirs les plus romanesques. - Macha Makeïeff Do inanimate objects have a soul, a part of humanity locked inside them? The primal terror or the familiar feeling of strangeness we sometimes experience upon encountering them unveil an unconscious part of us: the one we meet in our dreams.
