Confronted with the SARS-CoV-2 crisis, unfortunately we have to cancel the 25th edition of the festival in May 2020, including this project.

The mission of the festival has always been to support artistic creation. We keep this as our core mission today, and we aim to support the artists and collaborators of the festival in this situation and for their future.

Guided by breath, the words and movement, composer and musician Caroline Marçot offers an exploration of the musical notations and the sounds that are symbolic of Hildegard von Bingen. The course will create a dialogue between this scholarly, mystical vocal work of this 12th-century composer, and the practices that François Chaignaud and Marie-Pierre Brébant have developed for the creation of Symphonia Harmoniæ Cælestium Revelationum, a total performance of singing and dance. This one-day course is aimed at amateurs and professionals whatever their level, singers and dancers alike.
