Festival Émulation

Festival Émulation has established a great reputation over time. This exceptional week, which is dedicated to the emerging young theatrical generation of the French Community of Belgium, is a real showcase for these artists, who are overflowing with inventiveness, desire, opinions and deep-rooted perspectives. A jury composed of international programmers will award the Prix Émulation, which is awarded by the Association des Amis du Théâtre de Liège. A second jury, composed of students from Liège province secondary schools, will award the Coup de Coeur or ‘Jury Favourite’ prize. In its ninth edition, the theatrical youth, who are more committed than ever, will take the floor.
