TOURNAI D’ÉTÉ

Heritage opera

Tournai, BEL 2020

THE TIME OF A SUMMER, THE OLD GARDEN OF THE ABBEY OF
SAINT-MARTIN RESURRECTS THE HISTORY AND FOLKLORE OF TOURNAI IN A SUBLIME AND ORIGINAL ALLEGORICAL EVOCATION… EMBARKING ON A JOURNEY THROUGH TIME, YOU ARE WELCOMED IN COMPLETE SAFETY IN THIS SETTING CROWNED WITH MAJESTIC FOLIAGE, CARRIED AWAY AND PLUNGED INTO THE STARRY OPERA OF A LUMINOUS GREEN CATHEDRAL WITH PILLARS POINTING TOWARDS THE CELESTIAL ARCHWAYS…

THE SPACE IS REINTERPRETED BY A SEQUENCED ORGAN PLAYING WITH LED PROJECTORS FOCUSED ON EACH TREE OF THE PERIMETER, CREATING A CONTEMPORARY SYMPHONY ALL IN VERTICALITY, PUNCTUATING AND GIVING RHYTHM TO POETIC AND CHOREOGRAPHED IMAGERY…
