SUMMER TRIP 1: Festival d’Avignon
You’ve come to know Utopia Parkway as a blog covering events in Belgium mostly, but this summer your beloved reporter will try to go on a trip or two abroad as well. All for art’s sake, of course. First stop? Avignon, France, where he will be trying to keep his mind focused in this mad and hot city, covering a couple of performances during the renowned Festival d’Avignon. Just last night your Utopia Parkway woke up way too early to catch the world premiere of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker’s Cesena, at 4.30 AM (!) at the Cour d’Honneur of the Palais des Papes. More on that tomorrow.
