The Pink House Festival is an intimate event in a farm house of Abbeville st Lucien, France!
Our festival's creation was inspired by the house itself, a reconverted pink tinted farmhouse that hosted the Centre Chorégraphique Mouvement et Dance (CCMD) which is celebrating its 30th anniversary this summer!
#thepinkhousefest celebrates dance, live performance, bold ideas with a DIY spirit, in short: movement in all its forms!
To do so, we have programmed both The Pink Open House, a week-end of celebration and The Pink Atelier a five day professional movement intensive.
Abbeville St Lucien is a country side rural village of 500 inhabitants in the north of France.
Only one Pink house though!
The program will be a gathering of projects and initiatives that inspired us this year, and may range from, live performances, music, circus, dance, theatre, jam sessions, spoken words to arts installations, workshop and talks.
We will be welcoming artists to fill the village the time of a week.

WHAT'S THE STORY OF THIS FESTIVAL?
// vision & mission //
CELEBRATING CULTURE IN A RURAL CONTEXT
The Pink House Festival - Centre Chorégraphique Mouvement et Danse (CCMD) 30th Birthday !
The pink house fest is an intimate multi-disciplinary art event aimed at bringing qualitative social experiences and engagement whilst stressing the necessity of supporting culture in rural environments.
A group of friends gathered in response to the story of The Pink House which resulted in this collaborative multi-cultural project.
A group of friends gathered about a year ago in response to the story of The Pink House which resulted in this collaborative multi-cultural project.
After hearing the association’s project had seen its fundings cut to the point of having to leave space and The Pink House, close its doors to the public for good, we saw there the opportunity to make noise about it. We choose to support the contribution this space made to the cultural landscape of the region by bringing them a celebration it deserves.
Creating a festival for the large public celebrating the CCMD's heritage allowed us meanwhile to create opportunities for community engagement and social exchanges to take place. We believe there is an need to strengthen the support generally given to cultural actors implemented in rural areas and this celebration is our contribution."
We try to keep it an intimate celebration since this is our very first edition you can therefore expect a relaxed and convivial atmosphere and let yourself find opportunities for valuable conversations, exchanges and collaborations to emerge.
We welcome everybody to get involved to make this 30th birthday one they will remember!
