Every Thursday, Arc 1950 Le Village becomes a festive place with different concerts and shows from one week to the next. They take place under the clock tower, at the foot of the Aiguille Rouge or in front of Manoir Savoie with its breathtaking view of Mont Blanc, so you can enjoy the end of the afternoon watching a show or a concert with your family.
The Thursday 'Arc en Scène' events will make the Village of Arc 1950 a theatre for new experiences that you can share with the whole family!

July 25th: Circus show: Mr Banana Show – in front of Manoir Savoie
Mr Banana Show is a unique show in a never-seen-before style! It is a performance that uses physical comedy and mime to portray a message that can be understood the world over: a show that goes beyond the barriers of language.
Pierrick St-Pierre, a circus artist from Québec, tightrope walker, mime artist and juggler, amongst other talents, will be presenting the Mr Banana Show that has been shown in 40 countries over the past five years. An interactive show for all ages by an artist with a universal message.
August 1st: Concert: Smokin Birds – under the Clock Tower
People sometimes meet just by chance... and then, there’s a feeling, a phone call, a misty morning and the first notes of music are played... A voice, a guitar, a coffee, an idea: an acoustic band made up of friends who just decide to go for it! A bass and drums... a set list put together in just a few days, the decisions on keys and structures validated over a beer on Friday evening... So, without ever really planning it, in just a few weeks and only one rehearsal with the whole band there, chance turns into something that was meant to be...
August 8th: Circus theatre: “The future was better before!” by the Vils Brequins Company – under the Clock Tower
The illustrious Duke Poplincourt is a nobleman and lover of literature who is forced to leave his castle, taking with him his faithful valet. The mission of these heavenly hobos is to carry out the last wishes of the late Hildegarde: doves, a phonograph, vinyl records, rap and breakdancing will take you through her will with its mysterious codicils. “The future was better before” is an inter-generational show with a flow of unclassifiable and disconcerting fantasies that plays on an explosive contrast: the delicacy of time gone by bathed in the dissenting spirit of urban culture.
August 15th: A visual comedy show: “Elastic: The Gag Man” – in front of Manoir Savoie
“The Gag Man” is a visual comedy show where the performance borders on the ridiculous, where surprise and hilarity go hand in hand and the poetry will take you from laughter to tears. It’s a combination of circus and music-hall that will carry you off in a flurry of comic moments where everything goes a little differently than planned for Elastic: visual illusions, bad jokes and a brilliant improviser who is sure to make you laugh and warm your heart.
August 22nd: Concert: NoïZ – under the Clock Tower
NoïZ is the duo of Eric Elicegui and Florent Loyez who play cover versions and their own pop/rock compositions. After working on the music scene for several years, they decided to pool their stage experience by creating "NoïZ" to play quality cover versions.
Their repertoire covers major hits from the 1950s to 2018, from rock n' roll to rock and pop/rock: Chuck Berry, Queen, Lenny Kravitz, Pink Floyd, Muse, AC/DC, Téléphone, Shaka Ponk, Bruno Mars, Daft Punk, Dire Straits and more.
