SACRe at the 76th Avignon festival


On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the SACRe doctoral program run by Université PSL, SACRe has joined forces with the École d'art d'Avignon (ESAA) to develop a program that will focus on the performing arts, at the heart of the Avignon Festival.

The SACRe (Sciences, Arts, Creation, Research) doctoral program, which is included in the Arts Graduate Program at Université PSL, has been supporting research & creation dissertation projects in 6 artistic disciplines for the past 10 years. The program is a pioneering initiative that brings together six schools (ENS-PSL, CNSAD-PSL, la Fémis, ENSAD, Beaux-Arts de Paris, CNSMDP); it has already trained more than 50 Doctors and is currently involving some 50 PhD students.

The issue of reenactment in artistic practices, which has been very present since the beginning of the 2000s, provides the main theme of this program. In four days and two evenings, artists, researchers, performers and experts will be invited to discuss the modalities of reuse, replay and remake and their contemporary echoes.

The program "Re-present. Contemporary forms of reenactment" takes place from July 18th to 21st at the Eglise des Célestins, during the 76th Festival d'Avignon. It proposes feedbacks based on works related to SACRe dissertations in progress: those by Ondine Simonot-Bérenger, Léandre Bernard-Brunel, Nilüfer Gros, Chloé Lavalette, Clémence Hallé and a group of students from CNSAD - pSL. It also includes interventions and performances by Morgan Labar, Claire Lasne-Darcueil, Anne Bénichou, Massimo Furlan, Keti Irubetagoyena, Bernard Müller, Luc Magrina, Adrien Bernard-Brunel, Cyril Jarton, Sophie Delpeux, Duncan Evennou.

In the evening, on July 19 and 21, the Utopia cinema hosts a program of SACRe films, including "Nous sommes deux drôles" by Arthur Bart, "Watching the Pain of Others" by Chloé Galibert-Laîné and "Gorgone" by Jenny Teng.
