les estivales

August 22nd – August 25th

Finally a celebration of masks that has a face

Why Les Estivales by Masque en scene?

In theater, the mask is not just a beautiful object, it reveals all the humanity of the actor. 

The art of the theatrical mask is a truly universal language, it has the power to make the spectator laugh, cry and charm in turn. It is accessible to everyone across cultures, social classes or ages. This is why the mask is favored in the popular arts of commedia dell’arte as well as in the Balinese ceremonial arts. Masques en scène aims to create a meeting place in Alba la Romaine for mask arts from all over the world.
