Curiosity Alexandra - Responsable Communication By Alexandra - Responsable Communication, the 04 August 2015

Romanic Nights, you know?

It is the 11th year when this festival settled down in our beautiful region, highlighting the Romanic heritage by artistic shows of different universes: circus arts, ceramics, dance, music, visual arts …

This year of 2015 has a particular tone because it is the journey of the Hermione in the United States. Then, naturally, Romanic Nights the famous with the coming of four American groups and on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, two regional companies occurred on the occasion of the New York stopover of the Hermione in Central Park, the beginning of July.

It is this show " A break (break dance) to Mozart " with the dancers of Centre Chorégraphique National de La Rochelle (national dance studio) et l’Orchestre des Champs-Elysées (band) which was proposed in Niort, on July 27th of this year and which I went to see.

When the classical music is of use as case to ten hip-hop dancers. Explosive association of modernity! Don Giovanni and The Requiem revisited, with the Donjon of Niort illuminated in background. It was worth it to wait till 22 hours, in the dark night, to take advantage completely of this show and this lighting effects.

Then, you also take advantage of these free shows throughout August. Here is the programming of the next dates on the territory of the urban area of Niortais:

August 9th, in the church Saint-Eutrope of Beauvoir-sur-Niort with Smart Compagnie (air circus)

18, in the church the Holy Trinity of Coulon with Linda Lee Hopkins (gospel)

20, in the church Saint-Peter of Mauzé-sur-le-Mignon with Lallala Napoli (Latin musics) and Cie Attrap' Lune (ceramics)

27, in the church Notre-Dame of Echiré with Feufollet (current musics)

You see, the programming is heterogeneous.

Here is a beautiful opportunity to enter these Romanic jewels which we often look by far without ever penetrating there and to mix discovery of our Romanic architecture and high-quality artistic evenings!

And in your cameras also to participate in the competition of photos.
