Préavis de Désordre Urbain is a laboratory-festival. 6 intense days dedicated to experimentation, to meeting and artistic creation. Each Preavis festival explores the body in public space and focuses on:


-Artistic schedule. A privileged time to re-build its project of performance and adapt it to the context of the city of Marseille.

Impertinent and subversive proposals are welcome.


Flow, circulation, transports punctuate urban life.. Urban trajectories are often traced to the millimeter, they should not leave the rail And if we introduced a grain of sand on an urban route....

It is vital to create Emergency Stop Performances on these transit urban routes. Emergency Stop Performances dedicated to the body, desires and rituals. We can explore and inhabit these urban routes in other ways and propose to the public to share an artistic and existential experience.

The performances will take place on trips in the city, in public transport or at bus and tramway stops. The car, private sphere into the public sphere, may also be a space of performance.

SCHEDULE 2015: The performances may take place:

  • In a bus or tram

  • On the outside, on the route

  • At bus and tramway stops

  • In a car parked in a parking lot

  • Outside of a car (the public being inside)

DEADLINE for submissions: 20 April 2015
