cellopoetePublicity for the festival says it is one of todays most important contemporary performing arts gatherings…  something I can well imagine given there are about 300 performances (not including the OFF – the Edinburgh Fringe equivalent) and a budget of 12 million euros.  Variety! –flyer take 2enfantsI’ll be going back for a bit more Festival action on Friday or Saturday.  The newly re-hung Collection Lambert will hopefully also be open in it’s new home, the former Prison Saint Anne – one of the first purpose built 18th Century prisons – behind the Papal Palace.
