Shedding light on hidden faces
For all ages
Due to the sanitary context, Le Rance n’est pas un fleuve / Les Épiphaniques (The Rance is no river / The Epiphanics) is canceled. We thank you for your understanding.

After Pier chante son crime (2006), Aria (2012) and Gigot Love (2017), Les Tombées de la Nuit continues to support the Kali & Co company and Massimo Dean. Le Rance n’est pas un fleuve is a long-term performance project that brings together a dozen so-called “marginalised” people who are unaccustomed actors, alongside artists (Massimo Dean, Arnaud Méthivier, Richard Louvet, Yvon Le Men), working with a network of cultural and social partners.

Since starting out three years ago, Massimo Dean has sown the seeds of an ambitious artistic project that aims to showcase women and men on the margins of society, who are not actors but part of a visionary humanity, in order to build a new world by sharing a moment of poetical joy. He is joined in this adventure by poet Yvon Le Men, author of the Les Épiphaniques text, which looks back on the “incredible encounters” with these twelve unique individuals working to escape the shadows, forming the basis of the project’s dramaturgical development.

A musical reading of Les Épiphaniques, with Yvon Le Men accompanied by accordionist Arnaud Méthivier, will be presented to the public for the first time this Sunday. At the same time, surprise appearances will occur on the various floors of Les Champs Libres, thanks to this satellite performance featuring both text and music, entitled Le Rance n’est pas un cri – a project with around ten young people from the city centre who play music or write texts based on rap culture. This creative project and poetical/political act seeks to bring together the musical forces moving through the edges of our society, meeting every Thursday at the ADSAO centre to create pieces that incorporate everyone’s artistic capacity (whether or not they are professionals, musicians or poets) and show them to the public. The idea is to better channel anger by transforming it into music.

The project will then lead to other encounters, exchanges and residencies before seven performances in March and April at TNB, and one performance at the ADSAO housing and social integration centre, presented by Les Tombées de la Nuit on Sunday 24 April.
