La Ruche celebrates its tenth birthday!
La Ruche (the Hive), an area dedicated to street theatre and circus arts, is a treasure trove of delights, humming with creativity, hidden behind the Quartier des Alpes. An unexpected clearing in the woods in which are located a series of "Honeycombs" or alveoli, the name given to the various performing spaces, installations and exhibitions that make up the hive. La Ruche is an open space that exposes some original, raw, surrealist artists. It’s also an organic space that breathes, that teases us and that swallows us up, where myriad artists go about their business and where the various strolling players prepare before setting off to entertain the crowds across the Asse site. Active, honey-sweet and effervescent, its vocation is to surprise, enthral, fascinate and charm visitors of every generation.
"They dared… they dare… they’ll dare again! "
Utopias. Look back at those of ten years ago, enter the universe of today’s and dream of tomorrow’s. La Ruche will be daring and proposing a multitude of poetic, grandiose and striking utopias, connected to the circus, to the theatre, comedy, acrobatics, music. This year, the companies performing at la Ruche will prove that the word impossible doesn’t figure in their vocabulary and will be daring to transform this magical space into a place where sharing, tasting, discovering, wonderment and festivities become second nature … a place for living. And daring. In all simplicity.
Full line-up announced during May.
