Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, necromancers, fairies, elves and sorceresses, to this magical edition of Ja! Festival, that is celebrating its fourteenth birthday. We have reached our teenage years without the folly that comes with it as it was already ingrained by default.
Magic, the main theme of the fourteenth festival, revealed in the arts and culture. The magic of the imagination, of the inexplicable, of the unearthly, of seduction, of what is faster than the senses, of the artificial that pretends to be authentic and of what brings back the innocent gaze of childhood. Magic plays a significant role in many of the acts featured in the program and is often intertwined with humour.
The 14th edition’s programme will be held in different venues between 27 September and 8 October.
