The centre de création is proud to present redfest – a biannual micro festival of circus, dance and theatre. The redfest is a celebration of new creative work. We endeavor to support artists, give them space to work through redfest residencies, and offer a platform to present their work. The festival also provides an opportunity for companies to come together, network and exchange views. The programme changes with each new redfest. We invite promoters within the industry and market the festival in the local Dordogne region.
The redfest is an entertaining event for our audience of locals and summer visitors packed with various artists and companies performing new work or work in progress. Please come and support live circus arts and enjoy an evening of captivating performances.
Due to the last couple of years of Covid, the next redfest will take place in august 2023. We look forwards to seeing you all then.
