The organizers will present a unique French and Ukrainian performance “The Air” combining the talents and skills of a French composer, a Luxembourg conductor, and Ukrainian director, musicians and artists.
The «French Spring» in Ukraine is a traditional festival of modern art. The aim of this event consists in cultural exchange between Ukraine and France. The programme of the festival includes art exhibitions, photo projects, murals, concerts, film screenings, performances, street shows and a job fair.
“For the fourth year in a row, we have supported the French Spring festival and acted as the general sponsor. As a bank, we see our role not only in the development of the financial market, supporting business and economy of the country. We also strongly support projects promoting the French culture and language in Ukraine and facilitating communication and cultural exchange between our countries”, - Jean-Paul Piotrowski, Chief Executive Officer of Credit Agricole Bank, commented.
During the press conference held on 12 March on the occasion of the opening of the festival, Mr. Piotrowski noted that this year’s “French Spring” is special. In the previous years, Ukrainian audience could enjoy the shows that were created and demonstrated in France, and this time the spectators will be able to watch a unique performance that was created specifically for the fifteenth anniversary of the festival. For the first time ever, Ukrainian and French artists will exercise their talents together and will offer a unique French and Ukrainian street performance “The Air” to the festival visitors. According to Mr. Piotrowski, the national motto of France – “Liberty, Equality, Fraternity” – became the keynote of the festival.
