les routes de la liberté

Commemoration Show

Bastogne, BEL

FOLLOWING THE ROUTE OF EMBLEMATIC CHARACTERS AND THANKS TO THE PARTICIPATION OF MORE THAN 120 EXTRAS, THE 30,000 SPECTATORS PRESENT DURING THE EVENING WERE ABLE TO dive INTO THE BATTLE OF THE bulge. FROM THE HELL OF WINTER OF ’44-45 TO THE COLD WAR AND THE FALL OF THE BERLIN WALL.

Paintings of fire and light set Mardasson ablaze while snow flashed over the audience. In front of him were the intertwined stories of two soldiers, American and German, a nurse and a little girl, giving a human approach to this cruel battle.

Then, this show entitled The Paths of Liberty gave way to hope during poetic scenes, mixing dance and aerial ballets, before offering a masterful finale bringing together all the clans and symbolizing the union of the people and that of Europe.

An original approach, beyond commemoration, to make everyone a Bearer of History.

Images to remember.

Words to understand.

A living and monumental fresco never to be forgotten.
