Théâtre des Aspres – Season 2018/19
The Théâtre des Aspres in Thuir invites you to discover their cultural programme in their 6th season of fabulous theatre and performance.
The sixth season promises to uphold, and even surpass the theatre’s excellent reputation for quality, diversity and accessibility.
The opening of the 2018/2019 season will be “The Salamander War” by Karel Čapek, in the presence of the play’s director, Robin Renucci. The work, written in the 1930s was,and still is, a visionary representation of the evolution of the human behaviour.
This will be followed by a range of shows covering great artistic diversity: dance, circus, music hall, puppets, masks, shadow theatre and more!
Performers will come from North and South Catalonia, France, Spain, Switzerland, Belgium and the United States to entertain audiences of all ages and nationalities.
