The exciting cultural program of Carcassonne-agglo was unveiled on Friday evening, in its Chai room, in Capendu. It brings together thirty shows, and will be itinerant in fifteen partner municipalities. The objective of this programming: to give the public a taste for the show, the opportunity to approach the artists, while addressing very current themes, such as the voice of women, the environment or fraternity.
“Survoltées”, a musical, crazy and joyfully provocative show proposed by the Company “Les Swingirls” will kick off the cultural season proposed by Carcassonne-agglo and unveiled this Friday evening, in its Chai room, in Capendu. A show that contains in itself a large part of the DNA of this program: humor, freedom of tone, a look at society and its codes, the joy of artistic creation. And the nomadism, too, of this programming, which wants to get closer to the public: the Swingirls, in fact, are programmed in Ventenac-Cabardès, one of the fifteen partner municipalities of the programming
In total, the program includes thirty shows, chosen and offered in consultation with the association Avec, and which are also the result of a partnership with 11 “Bouge (music today) and Carcassonne-Jazz. “We explore three themes: the relation to nature, the word of women and the question of fraternity, summarizes Frédéric Raynier. This is the observation that we made at the end of the selection of the shows. Does it come from the artists and their concerns? Without a doubt. These are very current themes, which we hear a lot about.
The common thread of this program is to make the public want to come. But it is also to give food for thought, and to surprise.
The common thread of this programming is “to make the public want to come, continues Cathy Py, director of programming and cultural development. We vary the disciplines: circus, song, dance, mime, with the desire to do people come to the show, but also the desire to give food for thought and to surprise”. There is also the beautiful place to make local artists: “It is important to us”, she concludes.
Finally, the cultural programming of Carcassonne-agglo is part of “the dynamics of cultural policies” that we are driving, with the Chai, but also the Fabrique des Arts, the Conservatory and the media libraries, continues Magali Arnaud, vice-president of the ‘agglo, in charge of culture. “Through this program, we want to promote the place of the artist in the public space. The artist who questions us about current issues and allows us to no longer be alone, and sometimes to find answers to our questions in the face of the great silence of the world”.
