Thanks to the agreement between the International Street Arts Festival  FEST´ARTS of Libourne and the Etxepare Basque Institute, Basque dance and theater companies have the opportunity to attend the festival through the "Euskadi à Libourne" program. The program of the festival, to be held from 6 to 8 of August was presented yesterday,  and this year includes 4 Basque companies: Compañía Dikothomia, Shakti Olaizola, Ganso & Cía and Kukai Dantza Konpainia.

Dikothomia will present the show "Spazi ... o";Shakti Olaizola will bring  "... Irakuriz" to Libourne; Ganso & Cía will go with "Walkman" and Kukai Dantza Konpainia will attend the festival with the show "Sorbatza". All of them perform on August 7 and 8.

Since 2011, the Etxepare Basque Institute works with Fest´arts to disseminate Basque street theater: through the "Euskadi à Libourne" project Basque companies have the opportunity to be part of the festival. It is a great opportunity to show their work to international professionals as well as to relate to new audiences and artists of the sector. It is a program promoted by the Etxepare Institute and the city of Libourne, that was born in collaboration with the Institut Français of Bilbao.

The festival also serves as a bridge between the region of Aquitaine and the Basque Country; a clear example is the co-production between Les Commandos Percu and Deabru Beltzak that bore fruit in the show "Le choc du tambeurs-  Danborren talka " in last year´s edition of Fest’Arts.
