Wacky and unexpected, performing artists take to the streets - there's masses to see every hour of the day and evening at Burgundy's transnational festival.

'Three men, one crane. A manly dance between shadow and light' L.U. Men Beau Geste

'A video that takes the viewer by the hand from one street scene to another. There are eight meeting points but you will only be told the first.' Around the Block, Asphalt Piloten

The Odyssey revisited in five languages, linked by a common cultural theme: coffee. Café Ulysse Compagnie Caracol

Here is Burgundy’s answer to the Edinburgh Festival, four days and nights of street performances by the local Abattoir arts group and their associates, together with visiting artists from far flung places from Australia and Chile to Spain and Germany. 160 acts, more than 1000 artists will be taking part.
