As part of the fourth edition of the Printemps de la poésie festival, Chillon Castle along with the Martigny theatre school, the University of Lausanne French department and Printemps de la poésie will be hosting an original poetry event within the castle walls.

5:30pm: Welcome and refreshments
6:00pm-7:15pm: Two poetry performances to be relished

L’Affaire Banquet (The Banquet Affair) - Immersive theatrical performance
A crime during a banquet. One culprit. One conviction. Discover The Banquet Affair: a medieval play – poetic, entertaining and burlesque in nature – on the dangers of overindulgence and the virtues of nutrition!

Aurélia Lassaque - Poetry performance
As a cosmopolitan poet, in French and Occitan, Aurélia Lassaque’s readings set themselves apart through their blending of text and song. In her latest work, En quête d’un visage (in search of a face), the author revisits the myth of Ulysses, breaking down the barrier that separates poetry from theatre – a perceptible and magnificent universe.
