The Festival d’Avignon is recognised for its capacity to produce and co-produce shows, thus helping companies finalise their production budgets and setting up tours. It supports the creation of new projects and helps companies in their dealings with co-producers, but also with local, national, and international authorities. With many international shows programmed at the Festival (65% in 2020), the production department of the Festival d’Avignon works in close collaboration with international teams to present those productions in their original language with French surtitles, focusing on the quality of the translation and surtitling, often commissioned specifically for the Festival.
Every year, the Festival co-produces over half the shows of its programme (60% in 2020). It can also lend material support thanks to LaFabricA and its workshops. Several residencies take place there over the winter and spring, some of which also include set building or engineering help to find technical solutions to artistic wishes. La FabricA welcomes artists for a total of over one hundred days of residencies every year.
