A free drink will be offered to the audience.

  • 14h30-15h30   Aymeric Hainaux - Performance Dent de Lion ("Lion tooth")

Dent de Lion

Aymeric  Hainaux is a young interdisciplinary artist who had been noticed for his skilful, intense, amazing vocal and body performances using only one microphone and a touch of harmonica.   He used to be a beat boxing champion and he still used those techniques but in a more abstract way evoking sometimes the electronic treatments with almost no words. Aymeric knows how to use his breath, muscular tension, slow movements, heart beat…as instruments of his incredibly powerful and unique performance

  • 15h30-16h30  Charles Pennequin - Tout pétarade ("Everything sputters")

After working as a gendarme in the North of France, he has developed a writer carrier publishing several books (publishers POL, Al Dante) working with a tremendous energy on the French language with a unique rhythm, accent and punctuation. He also likes to improvise with Dictaphones and also to take part to interdisciplinary performances

  • 16h30-17h30  Vincent Tholomé (conteur) & Xavier Dubois (guitariste)

A mix of punk, zen and also poetic voice and guitar between softer and harder waves. Vincent Tholomé, writer/performer and Xavier Dubois, ambient/noise guitarist and improviser propose a mesmerizing performance.
