The third  edition of Palais de Tokyo's annual festival features more than 40 propositions where dance, performance, theatre and music will intermingle. It will present new creations, showcase performances in Europe for the first time, as well as revisit others especially for the event.

This year, DO DISTURB is pursuing its policy of inviting cultural partners from France and abroad.

The guest festivals:
TBA – Time Based Art Festival (USA), with a project by Dorothée Munyaneza & Holland Andrews
Founded in 2003, this annual Festival is presented by Portland Institute for Contemporary Art (PICA), and is a forum for global artistic practice—featuring experimental performance and visual art, workshops, panels and informal, late-night conversations. The programme catalyzes dialogue about contemporary culture.

Festival DDD – Dias Da Dança (Portugal), with a project by Jonathan Uliel Saldanha
This dance festival takes place in three Portuguese towns—Porto, Matosinhos, Gaia—and stands as a crucible for the staging and diffusion of new creations in Europe.

Santarcangelo Festival (Italy), with projects by Silvia Gribaudi and Francesca Grilli
Founded in 1971, this festival is the pioneering Italian event devoted to international performance and artistic creation. Taking place yearly in Santarcangelo, a small town in Emilia-Romagna, it is deployed in public spaces, including the surrounding fields, thus blowing apart any notion of a stage and creating a temporary community of artists, spectators and professionals.

Actoral (France), with projects by Miet Warlop, Thomas Mailandaer and Alexander Vantournhout
Founded in 2001 by Hubert Colas, Actoral—an international festival of contemporary art and writing—presents each autumn in Marseille the diversity of modern writing, through the work of around 50 artists.

Camping – CND Centre national de la danse (France), with a project by Lorenzo De Angelis
Camping is an international platform of workshops, a festival lasting two weeks, which offers in Pantin, Paris and Lyon a programme of workshops, talks, performances, schools Marathon, parties, screenings, camping kids.

Finally, for the musical programme on the night of Saturday April 22, Palais de Tokyo is giving carte blanche to Nuits sonores x Mutante, with Calling Marian, Portable (live), Veronica Vasicka, Powell.

Chief curator: Vittoria Matarrese, Head of Cultural Programming and Special Projects at Palais de Tokyo
