5th edition of Arts and Humanities Festival

The 5th edition of Points Communs Festival of Arts and Humanities, New National Stage Cergy-Pontoise / Val d’Oise will take place from 10 to 18 March 2023.

Now in its fifth edition, the Arts and Humanities Festival proves to be a more privileged time than ever to open our eyes wide to another place. Through committed international performances and open discussion times, Arts and Humanities fulfills its ambition to better perceive and understand the world around us and to question it in the hope of envisioning a sweeter tomorrow.

For eight days, artists from all over the world come to educate us through their art about geopolitical realities and the intimate resonances it creates. From Brazil to the Congo, small stories join the big ones and capture us with the poignancy of their messages. Thus, Arts and Humanities are eight artistic proposals that cover the problems of our time – feminicide, racism, environmental emergency, plural identities – for this new edition, the participation of many artists from the African continent, an incredible creative territory.

Arts and Humanities is also a unique collaboration with the Paris-Cergy National School of Arts (ENSAPC). This year, five students are creating new works for the festival. Free in the form they approach (installation, pictorial piece, performance), their only limitation is to resonate with programming. They are led by Volmir Cordeiro, choreographer in residence at Points Commons.

Echoing these bold and inspiring works, the Festival of Arts and Humanities offers times for reflection and exchange, as it offers many opportunities to direct our gaze to the challenges of the world, especially during the meetings established with CY Cergy Paris Université, where artists and researchers compare their visions. . engages in a dialogue with the audience of the festival on the issues raised by the shows.

Arts and Humanities #5 offers a spectacular journey across the planet and exciting encounters with rare and under-seen artists on the French scene. An opportunity to dream of a more tolerant world, a world of openness and curiosity. Through art, for humanity.
