This year, the 58th edition of the Printemps carougeois will explore the fascinating theme of rites and rituals. From here or elsewhere, from today or yesterday, sacred or secular, ritualized practices are multiple, as the traditional spring event in the Sardinian city will demonstrate.

With the desire to question the meaning of these recurrent practices within our society, the programme of this 58th edition will embrace the immense field of ceremonial, domestic and childhood rituals. Performances, concerts, exhibitions and workshops will invite the public to explore the major ritualised stages of life, which constitute our identity.

The festivities will start on May 4th with the evening of the screening and prize-giving of CourtsCarouge, the short film competition of the City of Carouge, chaired this year by the director Frédéric Baillif.

The Printemps carougeois Festival, values defended for more than 50 years

The City of Carouge remains faithful to its primary objective: to promote a multidisciplinary culture accessible to all.  The festival gives local artists the opportunity to express themselves alongside international artists. Proximity, quality and accessibility are thus the values defended since the creation of this festival.
