Nous avons fait la Nuit

Films

Die Theater bleiben dicht. L’attente est interminable. Die Arbeit geht weiter. Les beaux jours reviendront.
(The wait is endless. The good days will return.)

Shot in a theatre stripped of its artists and its audience, Nous avons fait la Nuit features mezzo-soprano Sophie Marilley and pianist Florent Lattuga to melodies by Maurice Ravel and Francis Poulenc. Stage director Béatrice Lachaussée offers a stroll through an empty theatre which appears to have lost its essential purpose.
