Festival Saint-Yan Scintillant

Du 21 2021 au 22 août 2022 • Saint-Yan


The Saint-Yan Scintillant theatre festival was born in 2014, from the initiative of the actors' collective La Cohorte.

This local cultural event brings together, over a weekend, a program of short shows (20 to 30 minutes) in the town of Saint-Yan (71).

The Saint-Yan Scintillant Festival offers a unique experience to each spectator: each artistic proposal is presented several times. Throughout the weekend, each spectator has the opportunity to choose his or her own program, at his or her own pace, wandering from show to show, in everyday spaces transformed into performance venues (school, school canteen, town council hall, etc.), and to enjoy the village with a fresh eye.

2021 will be a special edition: because any collective adventure is bound to evolve, the Collectif La Cohorte is passing the baton this year to the residents' association "Saint-Yan Scintillant" for the organization of the festival and the construction of its program.

In a desire for openness and discovery, the new team will welcome seven companies, continue its work of territorial networking, and the partnership with several groups of inhabitants, amateur actors, readers or spectators.
