From Monday 11 to Sunday 17 September 2017.
The first ever free community festival of this kind, Coup de Théâtre Festival transforms the town into a theatre set.
In 2011, the association Les Agitateurs de Rêves was formed with the aim of making the great texts of our dramatic heritage accessible to all residents of Annecy, particularly young people. The association thus celebrates popular theatre by organising a free, outdoor community festival: its “Coup de theatre” (literally meaning a “dramatic turn of events”).
The mission of Les Agitateurs de Rêves is an ambitious and generous one: to make the most of the Annecy Basin’s exceptional sites, to imagine and make possible cultural and social gatherings that are free of charge and open to all residents !
The association has succeeded in restoring the spirit of the Nuits théâtrales d’Annecy, a festival founded by Gabriel Monnet in the 1950s…
Now an annual event, the “Coup de Théâtre” festival makes the lakeside town’s heart beat faster for 7 days. At the start of the school year and during the Heritage Days, this people’s theatre takes to the street.
For the 2014 event, 15 free performances took place and over 6,000 spectators were able to take the time to laugh and dream together.
Volunteers, spectators, partner businesses and shops, young talents and professional actors all take part in a meaningful collective adventure that makes theatre accessible to all !
