From 22 March to 10 April 2016

In 2016, La Villette is inaugurating a new multidisciplinary festival. It Is certain to be both rich and surprising. Offering theater, dance, circus, and music, 100% will satisfy the most demanding in artistic tastes for a huge celebration of creativity and innovation.

The Festival

Juggling with all artistic languages, 100% will be unfurling the activities throughout an entire month: shows, installations, concert, workshops, walks, and meet-ups. This festival is an invitation to discover the diversity of the artists in residence here year-round and to see the best of their current creative output through some big names on the international scene. The challenge for offering a festival up to La Villette’s high standards has been met.

    Ivanna Müller – Edges

    From 22 to 25 March 2016

    For the 100% Festival, Croatian artist Ivana Müller returns to La Villette to question and move beyond the concept in participative theater. In her show We are still Watching, Ivana Müller left the performance up to the audience, with a script as the only set of instructions. In Edges, once again our director confronts the notion of perspective in theater. This time, audience members can shift their point of view, change how they see what they are being presented. Thus, Ivana Müller puts the audience back in the heart of her staging by offering them a change to imagine, to invent, and to create for themselves.

    100% Expo

    From 25 March to 10 April 2016

    Beyond styles, shapes and frontiers, 100% EXPO is a path without contours through various installations: artists' creations breaking down the barriers between performance, design, visual and digital arts. Deeply rooted in a fast-paced and over-connected society, those creations question the invisible, obscure or poetical forces that secretly underlie such a saturated world.
    The visitors might become an actor and inevitably question their own limits to the edges of rationality, tangible and forms.
    The exhibition takes place in three locations of La Villette: the Grande Halle, the L5 Folly and the WIP.

    100% EXPO mixes rising and internationally renowned artists, others self-taught or coming out from Art institutions such as Le Fresnoy, national studio for the contemporary Arts or the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.

    Jakop Ahlbom – Horror

    From 30 March to 3 April 2016

    Inspired by Kubrick, Hitchcock, and Carpenter’s films, Horror is a fantastic visual show that borrows from the genre’s nearly universal elements: the supernatural, terror, and humour. Jakop Ahlbom toys with our basest emotion: fear. But beware, dear friends, here you are not at the movies !

  • [Dance]

    Vandekeybus – Speak low if you speak love

    From 5 to 9 April 2016

    With Speak Low if You Speak Love, Wim Vandekeybus aims to seize ever-elusive love. Cruel and tender, this show stirs up passions. A mix of classical, contemporary, and experimental rock, the choreography is a gust of desire and violence.

    100% Courts

    From 9 to 10 April 2016

    A quick marathon of short forms will take over several spaces inside the Grande Halle.

Demanding and very different proposals that straddle the worlds of theatre, dance, and performance.
