« Never stop. We always back off as soon as something is about to happen. »
— Peter Brook
Green, red, blue are the colors of our 2022/2023 program book.
Green for the season, red for the festival, blue for the interviews like plenty of colorful beacons to follow our many projects from September to June.
Despite the pandemic continuing to tire bodies and minds, despite the open spaces being restricted, it seems important to us to continue thinking wide while being part of a local territory.
Working together, creating.
With our now three festivals (Jazzdor-Strasbourg, Jazzdor Strasbourg-Berlin-Dresden and Jazzdor Strasbourg-Budapest which will have its first edition in March 2023), our concert season, our artistic and cultural actions developed throughout the year, our artistic support, our record label, we will continue this year to contribute to the influence of the music that carries us.
All that matters is being together, listening.
France (including Reunion and Martinique), the United States, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary, Norway, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and will be part of our mapping of companionships which identifies, beyond borders, “in-between” spaces, spaces inhabited by the unexpected, whether distant or near. This long-term research, carried out in the abundance of music that is constantly being created everywhere, attempts to offer a snapshot of the new currents of today's jazz.
By browsing these pages, you will discover the result of this recent quest.
This program, eclectic as often, reflects the extraordinary diversity of sources that fuel the creative imagination of the musicians we invite for you to discover and meet. If you do not know them then take the plunge, take the risk of crossing our threshold, with the only danger being the one of experiencing surprise.
Following our path, which continues to be carried away by this rather singular musical current, we continue to work to bring musicians and the audience closer together, to bring together cities, regions, countries, the people who inhabit them and who, beyond certain assumptions that sometimes die hard, allowing them to discover each other and invent new adventures to share.
