Open call for proposals
Between utopia, sexual liberation and the demand for individuality, what is the legacy of May 68, 50 years on?
Protest movements and revolutions have constantly punctuated History like so many incursions made to cause the established order to implode.
But protests are not limited to an exalted collective expression. Beyond popular revolt, it can result from an individual demand, a rejection of society’s diktats. Often perceived as an act of resistance, protests take many forms: conscientious objectors, hunger strikes, silent marches or the freedom of speech, rebellious slogans expressed on walls, leaflets distributed in secret, guerrilla or defiant acts, etc.
This 16th event will question the heritage and the shifts of May 1968, by highlighting different possible forms of protest as much on a personal level as on a collective level, and will give pride of place to disciplines that come from the street.
The 2018 edition will take place in the Marolles district. during the night of Saturday 6 October, from 7.00pm until 3.00am.
This open call is addressed to budding as well as established artists. Files must be sent by Thursday 15 February 2018 at the latest.
