Since 1983, the Art Rock festival created by the Wild Rose association in Saint-Brieuc in the Côtes d'Armor region has made its name by taking up the challenge of breaking down the barriers between the various creative genres: music, theatre, dance, digital art, literary events and gastronomy with the Rock'n Toques collective…
Two shows topping the bill
Compagnie Off will be presenting its show called “les girafes, opérette animalière”. Another festival faithful, choreographer Philippe Decouflé and his company DCA will be going back in their own history with a best of "Panorama". In addition to these two great shows, there will also be "Zombie Aporia", the creation of the young Brussels-based American choreographer Daniel Linehan.
On the stage
The new work "Running still" by Charlie Winston, Thomas Dutronc with "Silence on tourne, on tourne en rond", retro songs by Brigitte, modern cabaret from Moriarty and the voice of Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings recreating soul and rhythm and blues sounds. There will also be Puppetmastaz, the German Muppet Gang from the rap scene, plus the group 1995, giving voice to Orelsan, "Électro" from C2C, "Rock jungle" from Shaka Ponk and Électro-virtuelle from Étienne de Crécy. Finally, the many colours of reggae, jazz and funk will be represented by Stephen Marley, Ibrahim Maalouf and Theophilus London. As every year, there will be lots of free concerts, including the Métro musicians performing at the Forum de la Passerelle.
In the Digital Arts Pavillion
Also on the bill: the "Transfiguration" video by Matt Pyke from England, the "Morpho Tower" project by Sachiko Kodama, the kinetic sculpture "The Particule" by Alex Posada, the "Perturbation" installation by Du Zhenjun from China, and "Dérive", transporting us into a 3D model of urban spaces created by the artist François Quévillon.
