Red thread
Stars in your eyes!
After this long period of withdrawal where gathering rhymes with contamination, let's get together and enjoy the happiness of being together to share emotions.
An improvement, a joyful breath, a new season of Éclat(ante), to dream even higher, all together!
Focus on Nordic
The City of Caen, with its strong commitment to the international scene, wishes to get closer to the Nordic and Baltic countries (Denmark, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania) in order to carry out cooperation projects in the cultural, economic, academic and tourist fields, and has created a "Caen Nordic" label.
Since 2021, Éclat(s) de rue welcomes a Caen Nordic focus on each edition, with one or more street art companies from these countries. For this edition we welcome the company Hands some feet with Liisa Näykky (Finnish) and Jéromy Zwich (Swiss/Australian) on August 26 and 27.
Opening night: Artistic workshop of the PROJET collective.PDF
We welcome the PROJECT.PDF collective from June 22 to July 8 at the PVQ Centre Sud-Ouest in Venoix, for the creation of Légendes urbaines which will see the light of day in 2023. It is a large-scale production, with 12 female dancers who leave the room to question the place of women in the public space. During this project, they will take over the streets and squares of this territory and as part of a carte blanche for the opening of Éclat(s) de rue on July 8, it is around a liberating fire that these Urban Legends will be conjured up.
Family day
It will take place this year on August 5th from 10 am to 7 pm at the Parc de La Fossette.
During this day, shows and animations for families and targeted to young people are proposed
