Festival de Nimes 2010

The Nimes Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary in January, having established itself as one of the international references of flamenco.
December 18, 2009

n Seville the program was presented for the event scheduled to take place from January 7th to 23rd, 2010 in the French town.

Each year, over a period of two decades, southern Spain’s most representative art form has been sent to the south of France, to the city of Nimes, which since 1990 has hosted a flamenco festival of international reference.  The Nimes festival has come of age and in 2010 celebrates it’s twentieth anniversary which will offer a novel program combining tradition and avant-garde.

In this year’s edition, the Festival continues with the same objective as always, looking to the future while taking into account the present and the past.  An objective which also includes a reflection upon the role of flamenco festivals.

The result is a well-balanced innovative program that this year has been expanded to cover an additional week.  From January 7th to 23rd Nimes will be full of flamenco with the shows of Silvia Marín, Mayte Martín, El Cabrero, Rafael de Utrera y Mª José Franco, Javier Barón, Javier Conde, Pepe Linares, Henri Le Ny and Antonio Cortés, Israel Galván, Andrés Marín, Miguel Poveda, Pastora Galván, Diego Carrasco, Antonio Campos and Rocío Molina.  One novelty is that the Odeón theater will feature young local flamenco artists.

In addition to the on-stage program, Nimes will complete the event with dance classes offered by José Galván and Javier Barón, conferences by Corinne Frayssinet-Savy, Clude Worms, Nicolas Villodre, José María Velázquez Gaztelu, José María Castaño and Carmen Pulpón, laidback encounters, projections and readings related to flamenco.
