Between Mons and Maubeuge, the VIA International Festival has been breaking down the artistic and geographic boundaries for over 20 years now.
A unique European venue at the interface of the performing arts and new technologies and the meeting point of the international theatrical scenes, professionals and cross-border audiences. VIA will provide an opportunity in 2015 to experience the New Cinema, with a unique exhibition or a theatrical road movie with Fabrice Murgia. Parallel worlds will be crossed in the midst of a thriller danced and filmed by the choreographer Michèle Noiret. Café Europa is the venue to learn new digital expertise. VIA is also offering theatre created by Sophie Perez, La Fura dels Baus, Jean-Michel Van Den Eeyden, comic artist Romain Renard, technological shows for children and ventures into digital art*… Let us break down the boundaries!
