Culture  The night when Parisians don’t go to sleep…

On this coming October 3rd 2015, most of people in Paris won’t go to sleep, or at least they won’t until 7 am. This is because the 14th edition of the “White Night Festival” or “La Nuit Blanche” will take place in the city.

 
This event has been running every year since 2002, from 7pm to 7am on the first Saturday night of October. On that night, Paris is then transformed into a creative festival of art…
 
The idea is to make discover some new and unknown places, of which Parisians are not aware.  Each year, a different area of Paris is honored. This year it has been decided that focus will be on Paris northern neighborhood (last year it was the western part). 

 

 
As the COP21 will be held in Paris later during the year, Paris events have been related all year long to topics regarding climate changes. For this reason the “White night Festival” has also been organized in such spirit so that most performances will pair with climate and environment subjects. 

 

 
The Festival includes creations realized by 23 Internationally renowned artists (including Zhenchen Liu from China, Zimoun from Switzerland, Friedrich Van Schoor from Germany, Erik Samakh and Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves from France…). They have all been invited by the artistic director of “La Nuit Blanche”: José-Manuel Gonçalvès. 
Performances include outstanding artwork, street performances, and visual and musical creations more than 130 pieces of work in total!
