Luc PETIT has not yet finished making you dream
POUR QUE LES PIERRES
For the inauguration of the restoration of the Saint Martin’s Collegial Church of Visé, Luc PETIT and Michel TEHEUX conceived a heritage opera.
Thanks to this original concept conceived in close relationship to the place that accommodates it, spectators discovered their heritage in an astonishing and poetic way.
80 actors, among whom the 3 Crossbowmen’s Guild of Visé and a collection of saxophonists, dancers and impressive fire magicians made the city relive its history through the dramatisation of its emblematic monument.
A blazing show “so that stones become fire”.
For this tailor-made show designed for the famous telecom operator, Luc PETIT placed all his chips on Orange !
Technical prowess and physical effort, speed of connection and frantic music imparted a real momentum of modernity to this creation.
Fire, plays of light, and laser beams illustrating the optical fibres took the audience on a journey through the greatest technological innovations in the world of communication.
During the unforgettable finale, the guests, installed in a transparent marquis, witnessed a magical change of light on the splendid natural scenery of cliffs, symbolizing their passage into the Orange world.
“This is not red, this is Thalys”, was the audacious remark made in the speech of Olivier Poitrenaud – Managing Director of Thalys, drawing inspiration from Magritte.
It was in Brussels that the trains’ new livery, the fruit of some interior and exterior restoration, was presented to some 500 or so guests.
Transformed into a gigantic show hall, the TGV (HST) maintenance depot housed a truly explosive show: clowns, dancers, acrobats and magicians of fire opened the way to the new Thalys.
That’s what you-call laying out the red carpet!

It was again on Luc PETIT’s talent that Nespresso called for the inauguration of its new factory in Avenches, Switzerland. Architecture, passion, light and human strength were the four cornerstones of this bespoke show for Nespresso. The ideas melded together, the architect gathered inspiration, designed and drew. Passion made its entry on to the stage, men and women started to dance, fire flew from their hands and flames pirouetted in space.
JARDINS DE FEU
Magical night in the Château de Seneffe.
Evening falls, the gardens, the theatre, the alleys and the ponds blaze up and are covered with gold.

MAIS IL EST OÙ LE SOLEIL ?
The sun has shone in Tour & Taxis (Brussels).

It was on stages inBrussels, Amsterdam, Madrid, Lisbon and Zurich that Luc PETIT presented CitiZ via an astonishing show that involved the creation of brand new scenes.
The new range of Nespresso coffee machines, influenced by the aesthetics of the world’s major cities, with a minimalist, elegant, ergonomic and contemporary design, inspired him to design a resolutely urban universe.
Striking music, light shows, projections, plays of mirrors and dancers changing from streetwear to business suits, all choreographed in an urban style, gave this show its stunning rhythm.
LE MONDE DE VICTOR
Show from Juste Pour Rire Festival
Montreal welcomes the adventures of the couple, Rose de Nantes and Victor, the emblematic characters of the Juste Pour Rire Festival in a new interactive show created by Danielle ROY and staged by Luc PETIT.
Combining performing arts and fairground arts, Le Monde de Victor transports the festival-goers into a most fairy-like universe.
In this true fun fair district, visitors can saunter and discover fortune-tellers, stilt-walkers, a wheel of fortune, caricaturists, jugglers and many other surprises.
QUAND LE CIEL ET
LA TERRE S’EMBRASSÈRENT
The magic of Christmas once again operates within the splendid setting of the Cathedral of Liege.
To accompany Michel TEHEUX‘s dark text as well as powerful music, Luc PETIT imagined a completely light and poetic scenography by choosing a ballet of aerial dancers. With the help of subtle plays of light, moving along the columns or flying over the nave, the actors of this show revealed all the beauty of the Cathedral’s Gothic architecture.
The meeting of the Sky and the Earth, of man’s dreams and reality.
DÉCROCHER LA LUNE IV
La Louvière, BEL
30,000 spectators attended this new edition of the Urban Opera in La Louvière.
It was to the sound of 90 drums playing carnival folklore tunes that Sancho appeared. To accompany him, more than 700 of the townsfolk took part in the show by dancing, parading, manipulating giants or playing in the great lunar orchestra.
Poetry came from the sky with aerial dancers, rhythm brought by suspended drummers and a splendid fire organ set ablaze the church on top of which Sancho went to take down the moon once again.
An evening charged with emotions and dreams, engraving unforgettable images in the eyes of small and big alike.
