 This first step concerns : 
1 - “Special structures and particular settings” including traveling performances / wanderings (see Practical Info/Technical Information)
2 - Professional companies wishing to know their "pre-planning of representation" mid-July and all companies taking part in collectives (see Practical Info/Registration)
3 - All companies needing an electrical access to their spot

Pay attention: any registration not finalized before April 1st cannot be studied


  • Second registration time from April 1st to June 15th. It only concerns fixed performances (no wanderings) that do not require an electrical access at the spot.



A collective is a group of companies collaborating to manage a spot with performances, a public restauration and a bar.

The organization of a collective requires that one of the companies coordinate the project and implies the presence of a qualified technical referent. Only a professional company can coordinate a collective. We need one contact person for the administrative part and one contact person for the technical part.

Before March 10th, the company in charge of the collective must send us a request by email with a detailed file describing the identity of the collective and its artistic project including : 
- the list of all the companies and performances
- the intended program
- the scenic spaces and elements planned
- the total electrical power required
- the consideration of the environment and the relationship with the inhabitants
- all information judged helpful to understand the project

Before April 1st, the collective will have to send back the completed technical preparatory document (without which the registration will be considered null and void) and all companies will have to finalize their individual registration.

Pay attention :
- An agreement will be signed with the collective manager and ECLAT. It specifies the obligations of each person with regard to the occupation of the allocated space.
- For the public catering you have to employ a professionnal structure. Tand make the declaration (we provide you with the necessary information). Sanitary controls are systematic.
- We can’t find a spot for every collective project because of the limited number of spots available. We will find an individual spot for the companies of such projects. 









Wednesday August 23 to Saturday August 26.



This charter defines the principle and the conditions of this “Rendez-vous des Compagnies de passage” through the few game rules that allow this unique meeting dedicated to street theater to exist. Each Company passing through signs the charter to finalize its registration.


Professional Company / Amateur Company

Under the heading "Licence number", foreign companies will specify the existing references in their country.
Professional companies have priority for assigning spots and times.



Each Compagnie de passage must be covered by civil liability insurance corresponding to its activity.
The insurance certificate is requested at the last stage of registration during the finalization.
The civil liability insurance certificate must be in the name of the company and/or mention the company and its performance as a guaranteed activity. Its validity must cover the time of the Festival.

Companies that do not have civil liability insurance can subscribe to the civil liability insurance offered by the Festival through its insurer (MAIF). This possibility is subject to a paid subscription. The form can be requested from the Compagnies de passage office.
The insurance offered is only a civil liability, it is not suitable for projects with pyrotechnics, big top, special structures...

Each Compagnie de passage is responsible for its arrival in Aurillac, its stay, its team and its representations (including its technical and logistical needs). All the costs of the company are at his expense.
