NEW PARTNERS FOR A NEW BEGINNING : DBD5/REVES D'AVANT L'AUBE FESTIVAL 2019
The festival Dreams Before Dawn is a Bred In The Bone project since its first version in February 2015. It is directed by Matthieu Leloup-Bellon, with the collaboration and support of Bred In The Bone Theatre company members. The Festival is a collaboration between Theatre De Menilmontant, Le Ratrait art center, and Les Hordes theatre company. Since 2016 the festival is supported by the CRR of Paris, La Mairie de Paris 20eme, La Maire de Paris, and bank Bred branch Pyrenees.
This year The Festival Team is very pleased to welcome director Faraban's company "Collectif A Vous De Voir" as a collaborator and core member of the Festival Team. This Parisian-based company will enable us to reach out to an ever growing audience and give the Festival a much seeked after local outlook. We are looking forward to this collaboration which opens a new life to the Festival and promises a very exciting 5th version of Dreams!
ABOUT FARABAN AND COLLECTIF A VOUS DE VOIR
Faraban is a French writer and director born 31st July 1990. He was taught and trained by Elisabeta Barruco, Claudie De Cultis and Claude Shaer under who's direction he played Azzazelo in Boulgiakov's "Master and Marguerita" and Alain in "Iphigenie Hotel".
He founded his first company in 2009 with friends and fellow actors. After two years of travelling and research in the work of Artaud and Grotowski, he concluded his training under Francois Clavier at the Conservatoire of 13th Arrondissement in Paris.
There he met Maxime Gleizez, Ange Didisse and Guillaume Benoit who became the core members of the Collectif A Vous De Voir, an ensemble company which collaborates punctually with numerous other artists, actors, writers, theatre makers.
The Collective met Bred In The Bone at the 2018 Dreams Before Dawn Festival, and the idea of a collaboration soon emerged - similar views on the collective nature of theatre and the shared openness and interest in different European theatre practices made this collaboration a matter of course.
