Le Théâtre du Vide association organised the first Les Rocatines event in 1996.
Since then there have been three days of non-stop performances every year.
The plays were based on the theme of comedy until 2018... good times !
The themes broadened in 2019 and gave everyone free rein so there would be more diversity.
8 to 12 theatre companies perform during the festival. They all belong to the F.N.C.T.A. (French Federation of Amateur Theatre and Performance Companies). The playwrights are usually in attendance.
Since "true value does not need to wait for the test of time", the festival's organisers strive to give unknown but promising troupes a chance...
Feel free to watch some performances, the atmosphere and standards will blow you away.
You can stay on-site to sate your appetite... it's covered!
Advance booking recommended.
