Practical infos


Close to the Cour d'honneur of the Palais des papes and just before the trumpets sound, the "Souffle d'Avignon" takes over the cloître Benoît XII and commits to presenting the texts of living authors, many of which are unpublished. In this historical and symbolic setting, the cradle of the Festival, this 3rd edition of the Souffle affirms the federative character of this event initiated by the Scènes d'Avignon.
