Les Expressifs festival - 1-31 October 2016

For four days every October, the streets and squares of historic Poitiers are transformed into one big open air stage with the dynamic street theatre festival of Les Expressifs.

In 2014, almost 170 shows were performed by more than 75 different acts as the people of Poitiers took to the streets beneath early autumn skies.

This year’s festival takes place in October and is guaranteed to pull in thousands of fascinated spectators.

The vibrant youth festival is put on by Poitiers Jeunes, an association that encourages young talent as well as organising events, and more than one promising career has been launched with a well-received performance at Les Expressifs.

Think you can spot the big stars of tomorrow …?
