Accordingly, the programme does not focus primarily on literature, but includes the performing and visual arts, music and interdisciplinary artistic formats. Following up on a successful Swiss focus two years ago, three Swiss artists will be featured in this year’s festival from 26 September to 14 October.
Yasmine Hugonnet will appear with two productions: her international success «Le Récital des Postures» and «Se Sentir Vivant», a new creation. While she explores the body and its manifold forms of expression in both pieces, she does so in quite different ways – and almost casually shows that she is also a gifted ventriloquist.
The performance «These are my principles» by Phil Hayes has a playful experimental layout with questions and answers, consensus and clear positions. In a world of compromise, can you still make principled choices?
In addition to these performance projects, the Swiss author Antoinette Rychner is represented with a discursive presentation of her yet unpublished hybrid novel «Notre Epopée».
This year’s programme of Festival Actoral is sure to add colour to autumn in Marseille!
