"Les inattendues" - Music and Philosophy in Tournai

"Les inattendues" - Music and Philosophy in Tournai

Over 100 philosophers, musicians, singers and comedians come together in the patrimonial, scenographic spaces in Tournai from 29 to 31/08/14!

Musicians, philosophers and comedians will take part in around 27 shows, workshops and unique, unexpected debates in various locations around the city, including:

  • The cathedral,
  • The Halle aux Draps,
  • La Cour and la Place de l'Évêché (courtyard and square)
  • Tourist Office
  • The Episcopal Seminary
  • The Museum of Fine Arts.

Also present at the festival

Don't miss the homage paid to Paul André, the Belgian poet who received the prix Charles Plisnier (Charles Plisnier Poetry Prize) in 1977. Just recently his "Contes des sages du désert" and "Contes au fil de l'eau" have been published by Éditions du Seuil (French publishing company).

During the 3-day festival of unexpected encounters, philosophy and music will form a collaboration and music will take the reins by taking you towards an unfathomable infinity.

The festival will also offer you ways of understanding the world through speech, the unsaid and through music.

Practical information

Subscription options based on 5 ticketed shows.
