Festival de l'imaginaire

Created in 1997 by the Maison des Cultures du Monde and held each year for two months in March and April, the Festival de l'imaginaire concentrates the efforts of several institutions from Paris, the Parisian area and Europe in the field of world cultures. As an open stage for diffferent peoples and their most precious or least-known forms of expression, the Festival de l'imaginaire has defined its programming policy in terms of exploration, discovery and revelation, in hope of arousing the spectator's curiosity.

Whether academic or folk, traditional or contemporary, minimalist or sophisticated, the various events of the Festival de l'imaginaire are mostly performed for the first time in France. A few events involve return performances, after an absence of a few years, either to satisfy the desire for a new generation of spectators or to discover new talents. During the festival, grand masters of the tradition perform side-by-side with young artists who attempt to enrich and renew what are sometimes very old art forms.

The Festival de l'imaginaire also makes room for reflection. Colloquia, round-tables and conference-demonstrations, on cultural themes or phenomena from within societies, are some events that make new landmarks possible, enlarging our vision of the world.
