L'ÉTÉ INDIEN AUX NEFS
Every autumn, special programs have been scheduled to keep pace with the seasons.
This is the second programming cycle, from the end of September to the beginning of November, which are often the most beautiful days of the year in Nantes… the Indian summer.
These events take place in an exceptional location. The transparency of the roofs and the complete opening of the spaces let the setting sun flood the Warehouses.
The concerts start in this light and the stage slowly lights up when the night falls. This light shifting is one of the particularities of this place.
The Warehouses can house more than 4000 people for a concert. Conviviality and a public square atmosphere mark these evenings.
It’s possible to create intimate spaces for theatre, dance or circus performances with benches and access control, to set up a cabaret with a dance floor or to open up the whole area for a great concert.
An outer tent, built against the Warehouses, ensures a circus program each year.
The programs feature family fun, outdoor performances and street theatre. They include all types of live performances: theatre, music, dance, circus, children’s shows and visual arts.
The events are free or inexpensive, and given the evocative nature of the location and the highly accomplished international and local artists invited to perform, these programs have been a success with visitors of all ages and walks of life. Several thousand people attend the events each season.
