The particularity of the festival lies in the unique multidisciplinary creations that are inspired by distinctive locations. It brings buildings and spaces to life and magnifies the ordinary by offering a different view of the city. It allows the rediscovery of heritage through a different experience. Architecture becomes part of the “ritual” of performance.
The ARTONOV Festival’s ambition is to reconnect with the concept of ‘total art’, as Henry van de Velde understood it: to unify music, visual arts, architecture, dance, design, theatre and video and to offer our young Europeans a workspace catering to their creativity, curiosity and their professional emancipation.
Its international dimension, the discovery of unusual architectural spaces, innovative programming, the multiplicity of viewpoints linked to the questioning of Nature / Culture and above all the convergence between music, theatre, circus, dance, fashion, culinary and visual arts make ARTONOV a dynamic and optimistic tool.
