From the 23rd of May to the 17th of June, the sixth edition of the utoPistes circus arts festival is returning, with dance, acrobatics and more, to a dozen iconic venues around the Lyon metropolitan area, including Théâtre de la Croix-Rousse, Théâtre du Point du Jour, Théâtre des Célestins, Maison de la Danse, Vénissieux, Parilly and Saint-Genis-Laval.

Led by Compagnie MPTA (Les mains les pieds et la tête aussi) since 2011, this biennial festival invites spectators to dive into the magical, poetic, socially engaged and musical world of contemporary circus arts. Among the 17 shows on offer, some of which are free, there is Ali by Mathurin Bolze and Hèdi Thabet, Le périmètre de Denver by Vimala Pon and Presque Fresque by Galactik Ensemble.
