In partnership with Festival Casteliers

The assortment of characters in black and white in To Sleep Well intrigues with its singular strangeness, reminiscent of childhood fears, those of the night, the dark, and dreams. Once the lights are turned off, everything comes alive! To Sleep Well is a deep dive into a poetic encounter with these whimsical, endearing, and unusual beings, so close to our fears, temptations, and desires.

This story that emerges from the shadows is carried by the musical soundscape of Morgan Daguenet (aka Bertùf). Music plays an integral part in the show.
