Conversations: theme of the 12th edition of Rencontres

The 12th edition of Rencontres will take place on the theme “Conversations” from July 15 to September 30, 2021, in different locations all over the Gaspé Peninsula.

When this choreography, life, that we face day in and day out, changes dramatically. When those repeated movements, those improvised gestures, are transformed into a look at oneself, the inequalities and our connection with the other…

Conversations examines our relationship with privacy, with our feelings, with our immediate environment and with the importance of dwelling on humanity. A story line that appeals to our engagement, to observation, to presence and absence, to fast-changing societies. And that pays tribute to human strength and resilience.

This edition brings together 16 artists, and as many styles and forms, leaving broad space for dialogue. What’s involved is politics, time, life, the private and, of course, territories.” – Claude Goulet, executive and artistic director of Rencontres
