GIANT PROJECTIONS ON THE FAÇADE OF THE ”MAISON SYMPHONIQUE”
Starting at dusk, giant projections, combined with lighting effects, will create a distinctive form of immersion, filled with surprises and emotions. This visual environment will use avant-garde techniques, archival images and special effects to present highlights from the Festival’s 35 years to the beats of Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
Each evening at 9 p.m., a large-scale sound-and-light show will be projected onto the façade of the Maison symphonique. In the company of emblematic artists, this digital work will take festivalgoers to the Sahara Desert, tropical forests and lush landscapes.
It will be a true sensory experience, interactive and immersive.
CABARET NUITS D’AFRIQUE & OPEN-AIR WORKSHOPS
During the day, the site will be turned into an oasis of enjoyment and discovery. Beneath the big top of the Cabaret Nuits d’Afrique, festivalgoers will experience special moments with artists during intimate concerts, demonstrations and animation sessions. They can also take part in open-air workshops, for the pleasure of sharing passion and joie de vivre.
OPEN AIR PHOTO EXHIBITION !
35 years in pictures
To all these indoor, outdoor and webcast presentations will be added a photo exhibition using images to celebrate the places, the artists and the crowds that have brought the Festival’s stages to life during those 35 years.
During the month of July, on the Parterre of the Quartier des spectacles, festivalgoers can enjoy a stroll with cultures meeting, sharing and celebrating as they view 30 giant photos taken at random by Festival photographers.
