The Cockpit presents the annual Frenglish festival
NOVEMBER 2ND - 13TH 2016
Voila! is a unique annual rendez-vous where francophone and anglophone cultures meet, through performance.
For the fourth year in a row, Voila! proposes an eclectic program showcasing theatre in French, in English, or both, that is sure to piqué your interest!
This year, Voila returns. Avec attitude.
Brexit will mean London becomes less international, less multicultural, more closed and narrower in its appeal and scope. No it will not. It will mean the reverse. Because renewed determination to relate across boundaries, take control and flourish will follow any tendency to contain or restrict our city to national anxieties.
Voila! The French are coming! This year Voila features an equal number of English-speaking companies and French-speaking ones, all inspired by francophone cultures. We started with London-based companies: this year four companies are travelling from France and one from Edinburgh. The others are London based.
