Curtain up at Avignon

We bring you a taster of what to expect at the Avignon theatre festival in the south of France. We also catch up with jazz sensation Jamie Cullum to talk about his new album. Finally, we meet the man who founded one of the most important avant-garde art movements of the 20th century and which is being celebrated in Paris. Otto Piene talks to Eve Jackson about Zero and how it freed German artists from World War II and linked art and nature with technology.
