Festival Interceltique de Lorient gathers 4,500 artists from all parts of the Celtic world in events of every kind: traditional, classical, folk, jazz, rock and electronic music, dance, art, literature, film and lectures. During 10 days in August around 250 shows are seen by large audiences (750,000 visitors in 2014). The festival contributes to the development of Breton culture and spreads links to the Celtic nations of Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, Isle of Man, Ireland, Galicia and Asturias.
The past has always inspired creative artists. Festival O/MODERNT celebrates this process of renewal by exploring connections between the works of classical and contemporary composers. Highly inclusive, it also discovers new relationships between music and other forms of artistic and intellectual expression: dance, visual and plastic arts, film, creative writing, academic research and even cuisine. The venue, Ulriksdals Castle Theatre Confidencen in Solna, is the oldest Rococo theatre in Sweden.
The international contemporary dance festival Interplay has played close attention to the new languages of contemporary dance since 2000. Every year it presents the best new and emerging work‚ offering performances both in theatres and in urban areas of Turin‚ by artists and companies from Italy and around the world, such as Germany, Canada‚ Israel and Japan. Interplay is the only Italian festival included in the international networks CQD-Ciudades Que Danzan‚ Les Repérages and Dance Roads.
