INTERNATIONAL CROSSROADS FESTIVAL – ACT1, INSTANT HIT!

The first edition from the International Crossroads festival was a instant hit ! Exact numbers we have to wait for, but for sure at least more then 2000 paying visitors where attending the shows at this premiering edition and where the living proof of the top quality. 14 companies from more or less the same number of representing countries where the guarantee and highly appreciated by a very diverse attending audience. A number of sold out theatres exceeded our wildest expectations. The International Crossroads festival has exposed a ground flow for the near future : small and medium size intimate show, and a top level of quality. We are hopeful that the word will spread and we are already heading to the next year edition…but allow us first to have a dive into the fresh water…

NEW INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP IN MONTRÉAL.

During his recent visit to Asia autumn 2009, Marc Crauwels (Art. Director Crossroads Festival), as usual Crauwels used the opportunity to make new contacts. His meeting with Claude De Grandpre (Art.directeur Théâtre de l’Assomption Montreal), arrangments for a visit to Montreal was organised. The Festival de théâtre à L’Assomption sets a high standard for its programming, so only high quality performances, but what’s more is almost half of the programmed shows where visual based theater performances! We consider it more than probable that this new alliance between the two festivals, will turn into a future collaboration…
