Since 2005, Infr’Action puts the beautiful Mediterranean city of Sète under the sign of performance art. When one speaks about performance art in France, for sure, Infr’Action is the first that comes to mind. The festival has been able to rely on its knowledge of contemporary art to become a melting pot of young artists and others who alreaday can be described as belonging to the history of contemporary art. Infr’Action continues with the same ambition to innovate and being open to the audience at large, the same will to develop and go beyond while at the same time staying close to its original principles : being both popular and avant-garde.
