PAROLE EN DEHORS DE NOS FRONTIERES
I'm so sad to hear that Consonances is faced with closure. Some of my dearest memories are of visiting this festival and I was proud to be associated with the creation of several mixed-genre projects with Philippe, who commissioned my first play for it in 2007. I've written a blogpost about it which I hope may help spread the word. Please feel free to use it in whatever way will help.
I've just read your open letter about the festival. I'm very sorry about this situation. You're wonderful musician and person with so many great ideas.
I'm extremely bad in French and didn't catch all nuances of your letter, but I want just to express my support with this few lines.
My very best wishes,
