Biennale du Fort de Bron
The first edition of the Biennale of Fort Bron took place from 23 June to 4 July 1987 with the creation of the Mysteries of Paris by Eugene SUE.
Since then, the Biennale has continued to increase its visibility and reputation. This unique event was listed as a summer rendezvous in the landscape of regional cultural creation. A popular theater, bringing together a wide audience in an emblematic location which was part of the architectural heritage of the city.
Thirteen original creations , in 26 years of existence as well as success, who saw public attendance increase from 1500 in 1987 to more than 16,000 spectators and 10 to 37 shows since the 2007 edition . Fidelity to all public events (including bad weather ), a seamless continuity in the private and public support and an unwavering commitment to the City of Lyon, were also key to the success of this amazing longevity.
2013, on decision of the city of Bron, was the last edition of “Biennale du Fort de Bron”.
