Certainly the current form of primitive and traditional bullfighting, without killing, without picador, where the man has only his body and his agility to dodge the bull’s horns.
There are three main techniques:
– the jump, always very spectacular
– the écart, or the art of gentle dodging
– the recorte, the most dangerous, which forces the recortado to bend over to avoid the 450 kilos of muscle that brush against him!

09:30 pm: In front of the Church of Saint Anne
Video mapping “Picasso and freedom” on the façade of the Church of Saint-Anne.

From Saturday 6 to Sunday 7 May 2023.
