Since its first edition in 2017, the Festival TNB has been rooted in a desire to build a lasting relationship with the public, based on risk-taking, curiosity and encounters.
An important moment in the season, built with the complicity and participation of some fifteen cultural actors from the metropolis, the region and beyond – both loyal and new – in line with the programming. The event is conceived as a precipitate of the TNB project and the sounding board of each season.
The Festival TNB unfolds over several weeks and invites to discover singular dramaturgies, aesthetics and currents of thought, "out-of-format" projects, new artistic experiences, from different territories around the world. Since 2017, the festival has brought together artists from Egypt, Iran, Israel (extended focus), Afghanistan, the United States, Lebanon, Iceland (extended focus), Rwanda, South Africa, Russia, Brazil, Italy, the United Kingdom, Cape Verde, Senegal, Algeria, Mexico, Japan, Belgium, South Africa, Denmark, Albania and South Korea. The 2020 edition should have reflected the vitality of pan-African creation, within the framework of the Africa2020, the proposals were spread out over time due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
PHANTOM FESTIVAL (November 2020)
Unable to open the TNB in November 2020 (due to the COVID-19 pandemic), the TNB team imagined in a few days an entirely online festival. The Phantom Festival, with a daily programme for a fortnight, offered online: live performances, public meetings, interviews, recordings, reports, podcasts, creation diaries, press reviews, blogs...
Since the beginning of 2021, the "TNB Magazine" has made it possible to take up and develop all of these formats and digital content dedicated to both the public and professionals on a daily basis.
Crossings are immersive visits and original meetings designed for international and French professionals during the TNB Festival. This programme allows a journey through the programme with artists of regional, national and international influence. Crossings are dedicated to artistic and professional exchanges, thematic conversations and convivial spaces.
