Curious Spring

From May 3 to 28, 2023, Curieux Printemps returns to the forefront. The festival presents for its 8th edition a new concept, relying on local companies, unusual and curious places as well as new animations. What better way to marvel at theater and dance?

What is the Curieux Printemps?

This unmissable event is already 12 years old. Its credo? Highlight the art of live performance, reach out to audiences and touch as many people as possible by offering shows in a wide variety of venues.

Almost all performances are free. There will be something everywhere and for everyone because yes, this festival makes sure that culture is for all Rouennais, with a special focus on children! They are of course not forgotten, with the show sometimes even coming right up to them in the nurseries or schoolyards.

What better way than such an event to earn the title of European Capital of Culture in 2028
