Elèves et professeurs ont fêté le 6 octobre la troisième et dernière année du partenariat Erasmus+ "Nuits Blanches NBE+".  L'occasion d'inaugurer officiellement le "corner" européen du lycée, mais aussi d'annoncer le Festival qui se déroulera en Avril prochain à Saint-Jean-de-Luz. Les cinq lycées partenaires interpréteront notamment dans ce cadre une réécriture parodique du mythe de Dracula...

VAMPIRES TRIP : our common dialogue

à partir de toutes les contributions nationales
Festival management Note FM2
(Feedback 1)
A transnational narrative in the form of dialogues has been written. It must allow to play together a piece showing the fears of today and how we can sometimes fight/overcome them. The text is ready and will be sent to partners tonite or tomorrow morning (the translation into English to be finished). The piece is of a rewrite of Dracula's legend and takes into account the synopsis you sent us before C04. Thanks to all the teams for providing interesting narratives or sketches, which we were able to link in one another.The outcome seems appropriate and there is therefore no reason to assume that significant changes need to be made by the time we discuss Cluj-Napoca in the R4 Seminar.

THANK YOU TO THE CASTING: what students to play the characters?
Reminder  :the text will be accessible from the Twinspace where comments can be filed. If rearrangements occur by early November, a new edition of the dialogue narrative would be produced in view of R4 (FEEDBACK 2).

ABOUT NATIONAL PRODUCTIONS: We believe that the final text of the Dialogue that you will play in Saint-Jean-de-Luz (only your team on the stage!) does not need to be ready in early November. Thank you for coming to Cluj with a synopsis, and some detailed indications on your needs (light, decor ...) to talk with Jean-Marc. A deadline for the transmission of the text will be set, in order to allow a translation in French, so that the non-English speaking public can appreciate your work !

R4 Some partners did not ever say how many teachers or people would be involved in this meeting. Please you to give the missing informations to Ramona Zetea in order the hotel to know how many males or females will be present, and how many rooms you want !

dimanche 15 octobre 2017


Since no student from Saint-Jean-de-Luz had come to Cesme for C4 meeting (it was unfortunately forbidden for them to be implicated in the mobility), 11 french students and three teachers went to Cluj-Napoca from the 9th to the 13th of October, 2017, willing to study Dracula's myth. They had also activities with Colegiul Economic Iulian Pop's team about fears in totalitarian regimes.

This bilateral exchange was a way to produce the definitive draft for the common narative all the partners will have to play together  in april (the synopsis/pitch was fixed during C4 in Cesme and the plan to write dialogs was done  in Riga).

FEEDBACK 1 is now finished. The Romanian team is just ending the english translation before to edit it.

samedi 7 octobre 2017


Official inauguration of the Erasmus+corner in Lycée Ravel was done the 6th of october. The projects we are leading were presented by Headmaster and Teachers to students and municipality with the support of Mrs Dutoya, regional deputy. We have also shown a film about Romanian study travel C3 (november, 2016) since we'll go back to Cluj-Napoca from the 9th to the 14th of october to make local field reports (Peurs, Guerre et Totalitarisme ; Impact économique et social des Mythes).
There was a little cocktail aftter the photo session and a video projection.

We also celebrated in advance the #erasmusdays and the Thirty Years of the Erasmus program : thanks to the support provided by the European commission for education and youth....

FESTIVAL in 6 months !

A23+ FM1

We need to obtain early in october (or before) the definitive drafts for national tributes to the common narrative we have to write and play together. 

Why ?
Because a rewrite to link its will be done from the Romanian synopsis during the french romanian meeting in Cluj (from the 9th to the 14th)..... it will be putted on line to your attention.
After this first feedback operation, local project holders (but also students if they are interested in) will have to make an opinion about and to give proposals to change or adopt the draft.
A second feedback according to your observations will be done just before R4 (november) to have a brainstorming (during this mobility) made from concrete texts and try to approve a final text at this time.
Soon : FM2 (about number and name of characters we want).

First International coordination note 

A23 * 27/09/2017 * the 27th of september, 2017 * FM1

Hello everybody
I wish to all of you to bevery  happy at school... and elsewhere

- Do not forget, please, that  we have to do some little things together before November :
First, you know we must edit  a definitive draft for a common transnational story in early October. As Romanian project is supposed to be used as a mainstream  this work will be done during Romanian-French meeting in Cluj (October) : it's what was called FEEDBACK 1 in our plan.
Your national texts (you wrote in order its to be linked together in a single transnational story, called our common narrative)  were already given in may, 2017. But if you want to change something in, you can still do it NOW, but before the 1st of october (as it was planned in Riga during R3 meeting and published on our Gantt Chart / Turkey did it several days ago).
From October to the November seminar, the project will be changed or not according to your observations, leading to the final version of the FEEDBACK 2, before the five teams in Cluj are consulted (all operators are asked to use the Twinspace - your students can give opinion and make proposals if you decide to do so).

Second, some of us have to study together totalitarism (works to be achieved for Christmas). It could consist to compare national experiences of this sort of ideology exchanging powerpoint ?


In attachement our last international note (july)

Our planning for this scolar  year
Our transnational synopsis with selected local stories
The first draft for it (May, 20147)


Pierre-Laurent  Vanderplancke

- Veuillez ne pas oublier que nous avons quelques petites choses à faire ensemble avant novembre :

Tout d'abord, comme vous le savez, nous allons éditer le projet définitif pour notre histoire transnationale commune à la mi-d'octobre. (dans la mesure où le synopsis roumain doit servir de fil conducteur à ce récit théâtralisé, il est prévu que ce travail de rédaction intervienne lors de l'échange bilatéral Franco-Roumain programmé à Cluj du 9 au 14). Cette production correspond au FEEDBACK 1.
Vos textes  (les contributions de chaque pays censées être liées ensemble dans une histoire unique) ont été choisies en mai 2017. Si vous voulez changer quelque chose à votre texte, vous pouvez le faire MAINTENANT, avant le 1er octobre (la deadline a été adoptée durant le séminaire R3 et est publiée dans notre diagramme de Gantt / La Turquie vient de procéder à un remaniement il y a quelques jours de cela. Entre octobre et le séminaire de Novembre, le projet sera remanié en fonction de vos observations pour aboutir au FEEDBACK 2, version ultime avant la concertation des cinq équipes à Cluj (tous les opérateurs censés intervenir sont priés d'utiliser le Twinspace ; il peut s'agir de vos élèves si vous le décidez).

Deuxièmement, certains d'entre nous doivent travailler ensemble sur le totalitarisme (une tâche à accomplir pour Noël au plus tard).

CESME SOUVENIRS Against fears : Music and Dance


A 19 International coordination note * 22/05/2017

The meeting in Latvia R3 should mark a turning point. The switch
seminar's main goal is: to make the time table of our last school year ( the second phase of the project, which began in May and will last 16 months).

1°) First, to build a Gantt chart to plan the three types of job we'll
have to manage
A - each of the partner has to prepare a theatrical performance
and to play it during C5
B - a transnational performance must be written in order to be
played all together as the Festival main event
C - studies on contemporary fears and perhaps on future ones
will be done in classroom
deadlines :
Nov. 2017 (Seminar R4) for A and B,
April 2018 for C
2 °) Second, to divide the responsibilities for the intellectual
production to be rendered before the summer of 2018. 10 lessons
or articles have to be written and shown at the dissemination last
event in Cesme.
deadline will depend on the date of the last seminar in Turkey.
3 °) And to collect C4 results. A narrative has been
selected, and a transnational synopsis has been devised
from this base, which will serve as a thread to the common
transnational narrative we must write.. Each country must
give during R3 a list of characters and the fear on which it
intends to focus in the context of its contribution to the
transnational - See note A 18 in the international coordination page
or go to html.
Letters of approbation of French reports were
sent by our National Erasmus+ Agency.
The last one does insist on the following point
point. As the international coordinator, I ll have
a specific questionaire to fill and need
informations on what is done in foreign schools
to fill it. So, thanks to all project holders to send
me informations about the local activities for
each follow up survey period (next till July,
beginning from March). As we did for cp4 for
all the first pedagogic phase (SURVEY pages in
NBE+ website)

A18 note consists in the Rewrites guide : earlier post or most complete version in NBE+ website:

A movie made before C4 by Vivienne and PREMIERE L students

SUMMER, 2017

Cesme, Turkey
Study Travel C4 / Two big issues :
- students will choose among rewrites they did at home
one common story (or several) in order to play it together
- the travel is also devoted to the study of the Anatolian and
Mediterranean traditions and the rites in intend to ward off fears

Deux objectifs : 
confronter les réécritures travaillées dans les différents 
pays, sélectionner et/ou fabriquer un récit commun à jouer 
tous ensemble, et des récits à mettre en scène 
par des équipes nationales -  mais également :
étudier les mythes anatoliens et méditerranéens

Riga, Latvia
Transnational Meeting R3/ Two big issues :
-  teachers  should plan studies about contemporary fears (even
fear of the future) they want to do during school year 2017-2018 
- project holders  must select 10 items in order to product pedagogic tools 
as intellectual outputs and would have to dispatch the responsibilities
(works to be finished before summer, 2018)

Deux objectifs :
planifier lesquelles des études sur les peurs contemporaines (voire futures)
 seront menées en Terminale en 2017-2018 dans le cadre des cours 
et, surtout, préparer la production d'une dizaine d'outils pédagogiques 
que l'équipe s'est donnée pour objectif de présenter comme 
production intellectuelle finale 
(définition des thèmes et répartition des responsabilités : 
désignation du ou des auteurs de chaque article envisagé)

C4 results could be reviewed during R3 but the
Festival organisation is to be designed during R4 (November, Cluj-Napoca).

Mobilities during the 20 months first period 
according to our original schedule time table :

click and... See our definitive planning chart

List of Mobilities

R1 delayed (not in september, 2015 but in november)
main reason : it was too early because
the project implementation and all administrative 
tasks were not finished, the first fall (european funds) was later 

C1 on time / has been slignthy deffered (only 10 days later)
R1 was delayed, so C1 too.. but not so much
and it was eventually impossible for Cesme team to fund it

C2 on time / had been slightly advanced (only 15 days earlier)
main reason : after C2 we wanted a suitable date for everybody
and this one was choosen
in order to satisfy everybody

R2 just on time
A new schedule timetable for the following mobilities was elaborated and put on line
("Monitoring" page was opened in the coordinator's website)

C3 a little delayed (not in october but in november)
main reason : nobody wants a mobility next to the "back to School" days

C4 on time/ has been slightly deffered (only 10 days)

R3 was implemented in June (not in November)
because it becomes a switch meeting
between first and second pedagogic phase
(R2 issues)

Uploads on the new website to do, old fears are no more our main target....
Our eTwinnning is to be definitively closed

A review of the
First 20 months period
will be done during R3
Remaining 3 mobilities 

R4 will be advanced in november (not in april)
This schedule was decided during R2 to avoid any problem about preparations in the case 
we would be obliged to advance the Festival C5
(We were afraid to be obliged to advance it because 
we didn't want to disturb exams' preparation)

E1/R5 in Cesme : in summer

mercredi 22 mars 2017



I would like to ask you that the students' stories should be loaded to Ilargia website or to NBE+ Blog till the end of April. By your precious help, C4 Cesme study travel will be much more efficient. Please don't be late. 

Other Dissemination transnational pages are edited in the F page (right column).

Drinking Turkish coffee is a centuries-old ritual, enjoyed best in company and sometimes followed by some fortune telling.

 As the poet says,
"Not the coffee, nor the coffeehouse is the longing of the soul
A friend is what the soul longs for, coffee is just the excuse".
Turkish coffee is unique because it allows your fortune to be told by looking at the cup. This custom of coffee cup reading is at least as old as Turkish coffee itself, and it is repeated with each and every cup consumed. While this can be done casually among friends, it is also possible to consult professionals. So how a coffee cup is read, how can shapes trapped in a tiny cup reveal the future?

Firstly, the coffee should be drunk only from one side of the cup. When the coffee is finished, the saucer is placed on top of the cup, and a wish is made. With the saucer still covering the top, the cup is held at chest level and turned counter-clockwise a few times. Following this, the cup is turned upside down onto the saucer, and left to cool. Sometimes a coin may be placed on top to make the cup cool faster and to dispel bad omens that could be read from it. When the coffee cup is cool enough, someone other that the person who drunk the coffee opens the cup, and starts interpreting the shapes for divination.
Coffee cup reading is a widespread and popular fortune telling method, which speaks of both the past and the future. For divination purposes, the coffee cup is considered in two horizontal halves. The shapes in the lower half talk of the past, whereas shapes in the top half talk of the future. The shapes that feature on the right side are usually interpreted positively, while shapes on the left are interpreted as signs of bad events, enemies, illnesses, troubles, and the like. According to another belief, the coffee cup can tell the past but it can only foretell forty days into the future. Hence the practice of coffee cup reading cannot interpret the future that lies beyond forty days. In addition, if, at the reading stage, the cup and the saucer are firmly stuck, and the person is having trouble separating them, it is believed that this particular cup should not be read. This is a case of “prophet’s fortune telling,” where it is assumed that the person who has drunk from the cup is lucky, and does not need to have their fortune read. Similarly if a large chunk of coffee grounds should fall to the saucer as the cup is being separated, the interpretation is that the owner of the cup will soon be rid of all troubles and sadness. According to another standard interpretation, if coffee drips onto the saucer as the cup is opened, the person who drunk is to soon shed tears.

After the interpretation of the shapes within the cup, it is time to interpret the shapes in the saucer, where the majority of the coffee grounds have dripped. The saucer is generally interpreted as the home of the person whose cup is being read, and it is said to give clues about their domestic life. If there are large blank areas on the saucer where the coffee has not touched, the interpretation is a sense of relief that will be experienced in the person’s home. If however the shapes on the saucer are confused and disorderly, this is taken to mean that there will be a funeral or illness-related crowd in this person’s house. During the reading, the reader holds the saucer straight and waits for coffee grounds and coffee to flow. At the end of the reading, the saucer is flipped over once. At this stage, if a drop of coffee manages to get behind, and half way into the saucer’s radius, this is taken as a sign that the wish made will come true. Another important consideration while reading someone’s coffee cup is not to say things that will make a person too happy or too sad.

Whether it happens spontaneously after a meal, or delivered by a professional, the ritual of having one’s coffee cup read is a widespread divination practice characteristic to Turkish coffee. Today, in Turkey, the number of coffeehouses which employ professional coffee cup readers is on the increase. Hence you enjoy a fine cup of Turkish coffee, and get mystical glimpses into your future.

An Ancient Vampire/Demon From Turkish Culture

The Oldest One “Yek”

Supernatural beings like vampires or demons attract a great deal of our attention. So how do we define these beings? Of course, there are many studies on this . As you can guess, as a Turkish researcher, I pursued the possibility of the existence of such vampiric beings in Turkish culture. Thus, my main aim in this artictle is to study the oldest vampire/demon concept in Turkish culture. I will leave other vampire/demon concepts of Turkish culture like Obur or Yalmavuz for a another time. 

Vampires and demons also point out an interactive world of creatures. As you all know, vampire is a supernatural creature which drinks blood. It exists in almost every culture in the world. Vampire concepts such as Lamashtu, Lilith and Striga are ancient. What is the oldest vampire/demon in Turkish culture then? Let’s answer this question.
Yek is a demon that is mentioned in the Old Turkish dictionaries and the oldest Turkish texts. “Yek” finds place in the Middle Age dictionaries, one of the oldest Turkish dictionaries Divânü Lugâti’t-Türk (around first years of 11th century) and some of the Buddhist Uygur texts (8th to 10th cc).
According to the knowledge from Divânü Lugâti’t-Türk, the word “yek”  means “devil, satan”. Also,  Jean Paul Roux kindly gives  us hints that yek means “demon, devil, satan, iblis” in Old Turkish. The word “yek” is actually derived from the verb “yemek (to eat)” and, as you can guess, it has cannibalism in its nature. In an Arabic-Kıpçak dictionary, it’s also a dangerous creature in the form of powerful winds that accompany  dust clouds.
 The word “yek” is explained as “fairy, satan, devil, iblis” in dictionaries about Old Turkish. Also it means “obur” and while this denotation means “someone or something that eats a lot, appetent, glutton”, it’s also the name for a type of vampire in Turkish culture. So, if you are a person who loves eating much and someone bullies you about that, just remember that you may be a vampire incognito.  In old Turkish texts the word “yek” takes place in the form of “yek içkek” which is a name for another vampire type In Karaçay-Malkar and Kazak Turkish, this word appears in the form of “cek” and means demon, devil, satan, as well. Altay Turks have “cek” word in their language and this word means glutton, appetent; also it’s one of the epithet of Erlik the arch-devil. Imagine, the arch-devil, the prime antagonist of the
Turkish beliefs, i mean pre-Islamic, Islamic and the other beliefs of different Turkish tribes around the world, actually carries vampiric features! This fact itself alone can show how important of a figure the vampires are for Turkish myths. In old Turkish, the word “yek” is used as the general denotation of evil spirits in the nature. 
One of the oldest Turkish texts that belong Uygur Turkish (8th to 10th cc), has   descriptions of the hell in detail; creatures in it and what kind of punishments there are for sinners. It also contains the demons called Yek, who are a kind of hellhound, demon of the hell; they throw the sinner people, who fell  down into the hell, to the boilers and they are monsters that have got stern and sullen faces.
There is “yek” in an another old text Çaştani İlig Beg (The Story of Çaştani Bey, 8th to 10th cc) that belongs to Uygur Turkish, too. Çaştani Bey, the hero of the story, fight againts these demons that send sickness to his people and harm them; he saves his people. 
In this text the demons that called “yek” are demons/monsters that wait at the crossroad, eat human flesh and drink human blood, wrap the guts of humans to their bodies, horrible faced, shout with ugly voices, hold tridents and flags in their hands, in the shape of a black giant, with fire-colored and tressed and beautify their bodies with venomous snakes.
Based on the knowledge that we presently have, it can be said that yek is the oldest demon/spirit/vampire in Turkish folklore.

We are waiting also for answers about C5 in France – supposed to be implemented from the 24th to the 28th of april, 2018.

2. Deadlines
We have not to use Ilargia Twinspace anymore, and we did promise we'll put on line students' best products in the
If it's too difficult for you to upload materials inside the website ("How to do ?" was described in A14 note) you could  publish its in the Twinspace (and we'll move its after that to help you).... or you could even send its to us by « we transfer » (an apply for heavy files).
But we absolutely need to show more of our works during the next weeks (when EU administrators will have to approve our second  progress report)... The other reason is that we need to prove we are applying the plan (R2 issues).
We have to write and to send to the national agencies the second progress report 
(In France, it must be done before the 13th of march).

In order to satisfy specific demands from our Agency, please to all of you to make as soon as possible fill by your students the evaluation Google form did by Romania (link in E5 note) and to take care of these proposals :
As our partners from Cesme did not take part in Roma C1 event, the French  Erasmus+ agency  wanted (after we sent to  her our first progress report in september) more students from Turkey in the following study travels.  Increasing the number of students was done by the Ulusoy team in order to target the initial mobility goals during C2 and C3 (but in fact, the Agency believed from the beginnings it would be a good thing to take more students from Cesme, even more than it was said in our candidacy form). A solution could be to come to Saint-Jean-de-Luz (for the final festival 
C5  « Nuits Blanches ») with a bigger crew ?
Unfortunately, no students from France - and perhaps Italy _ will be in Cesme. So the Agency told us to make bilateral exchanges in order not to loose any grants . The Agency wish us to  maintain the number of mobilities we have thought to do. So we could go to Romania (French students) in October and Italian students could  come to France en January...
    3. Next mobilities                            
C4 in Cesme wil be the  meeting for confrontation between the rewrites made by the pupils : students should choose one or more common stories (the travel is also devoted to the study of the Anatolian and Mediterranean traditions and the rites in intend to ward off fears)
FROM the 9th TO the 13rd of MAY
All  that Turkish team need is each partner's story. Therefore a common synopsis Can be chosen here  in Çeşme. 
So it's important to put on line your best synopsis before the meeting (or to bring it with you). The pedagogic scenario 1 (A12 note) is to be performed : so national teams could perhaps play during C5 a short story they did themselves and one masterpiece would be done together
R3 in Riga: Discussion among teachers about contemporary fears (even fear of the future) including some plans to approach this theme with students during the school year 2017-2018 and first exchanges on the Training tools to be produced.
Ten articles must be written as our intellectual output and the repartition of responsabilities could be done there !
FROM 31th of  MAY TO the 3rd of  JUNE 

4. Help for progress report
Please you to compare what you did declare to the international coordinator and what you did effectively because our progress reports must not be divergent ! It is said to me I have to explain when you ve made things. So I pray you to check the attachement piece and to fill it before the 12th of march for me to complete my informations.
