For one night, come and live in the great theater, we’ll take you from the ceiling to the stage, from maze to maze, along the melodies of yesteryear and sweet polyphonies. Come and dream under the lights of the chandeliers and the stars, we will sing you to sleep until the early morning, and then what a wake-up call! And bring your things:

  • sleeping bag or other blanket
  • mattress more or less soft
  • pillow
  • flashlight
  • toilet bag
  • teddy bear


  • 8pm-9pm: welcome of the public
  • 9:15pm: lights out and torchlight walks
  • 9:30-11pm: musical walk with the ensemble Les Argonautes and the GTG chorists
  • 11pm-1am: Laurence Crane, Joanna Bailie, Morton Feldman & Meredith Monk concert by Stéphane Ginsburgh
  • 1am-4am: screening of silent films with DJ Antonis Kardelis (aka Elektropoulos) “Ambiant experimental”
  • 4am-7am: sleeping
  • 7am: wake up with coffee/croissants and music
  • 8am: end of the activities
