La Déferlante de printemps


For the last eighteen years, ten seaside resorts on the Atlantic coast have collaborated in arranging a free and original  programme for the spring and summer seasons:
Saint Brevin les Pins, Pornic(presidency in 2012) Noirmoutier en ile, Barbatre, Notre Dame de Monts, Saint Jean de Monts, Saint Hilaire de Riez,Saint Gilles Croix de Vie, Les Sables, d’Olonne(head office) and La Tranche sur mer.
The ‘Deferlante’  was born at the end of the eighties following the demise of the ‘Arts au Soleil’ operation . Its aim was to continue the diffusion of high quality performances on the Vendéen coast. It is a political co-operation, unique to the Atlantic coast, resulting in a popular and festive programme which gets excellent media reviews.
It is now nineteen years since ‘La Deferlante’ set out on its merry way, and its existence has resulted in a vastly improved artistic content.
 Its scope has always remained the same: live performances by well-known bands or theatrical companies in the form of street-theatre, circus arts, theatre, dance, song, and current world music.
From just twenty acts in 1993, the association, via its constituent municipalities, offered a palette of more than eighty national and international acts in 2011.  ‘La Deferlante’ demonstrates the Atlantic Coast’s dynamism through cultural exchange and a seriously artistic programme.
In 2013, more than 150,000 people shared in these events; holidaymakers, young and old, but also the local residents.
Since the spring of 2007, this cultural spree has begun on the Ascension Day weekend (in May) with a new event : The springtime Deferlante, concentrating solely on street theatre.
