Scheduled from July 28 to August 10, 2020, the Ramatuelle festival, chaired by Jacqueline Franjou and always with Michel Boujenah at the helm (artistic director of the festival since 2007), will welcome personalities such as François Berléand, François-Xavier Demaison, Jacques Weber, Pierre Palmade, Abd Al Malik or even Jarry, who opens the ball with his last one-man show on August 1st. Invited for this 36th edition, Patrick Poivre D’Arvor marked the three “Classical Nights” proposed as a preamble with a magnificent recitation of verses on the notes of pianist Jean-Philippe Collard.
Born to honor the performer of the Cid – Gérard Philippe – in 1985, the Ramatuelle festival was imagined and launched by Jean-Claude Brialy and Jacqueline Franjou in 1985. Since then, this festival has become an unmissable cultural event celebrating every year emblematic artists of the French scene. Maintained this summer despite the covid-19 crisis, Jacqueline Franjou explained that she was “very happy and very calm” at the time of celebrating this new edition of the event.
We will be very careful
Organized in an open-air amphitheater, security measures have been added to ensure the show is safe: “Everything has been put in place to ensure that the festival takes place in the best conditions. First, the festival is held in the open. air is important. The gauge has been limited to 700 against the usual 1200. The teams have been tested. Wearing a mask will be compulsory. There will be a group distance and our teams will place all the spectators themselves. bleachers will be disinfected. We will be very careful. “
Hailed and applauded by the public, the artists present will however not be able to attend the traditional “throw of cushions” on stage (due to the epidemic of coronavirus). Readings, shows, comedy sketches and plays will follow one another until August 10 to the delight of spectators, (also) rocked by the song of the cicadas.
