A composer and DJ known for his astonishing sets, Arnaud Rebotini loves to create and collaborate with other artists; for the Festival, he'll perform the original soundtrack of BPM (Beats Per Minute), for which he won the César for best original soundtrack in 2018. Inspired by different musical movements, including house, which he revisited for Robin Campillo's film, this French master of electro also loves impressionist classical music. An alliance of tastes ready to soar to new heights in the Cour d'honneur, whose heart rate will surely climb over the course of the last evening of the Festival. Accompanied by instrumentalists, Arnaud Rebotini and his many synthesizers, true technological extensions of his body, will unleash their intoxicating beats. Come listen to moving compositions that serve as reminders of the actions of Act Up and evoke memories of the dance floor, watch BPM (Beats Per Minute) in the Cour d'honneur, and feel how music must go on in the face of illness.

Jean-Luc Lagarce died of AIDS at 38. His work, among the most performed in France, has met with public and critical acclaim. In Le Bain (The Bath), a man tells of his reunion with his lover fallen ill. They'll take a last bath together as a way of saying goodbye.

Jean-Luc Lagarce's Le Bain is published by Les Solitaires intempestifs.
