Les Fééries du Pont
"MONDES MAGIQUES" by Groupe F
The 5th, 6th, 12th and 13th June 2015
The Groupe F performers seek to delight spectators with their subtle transformations of the bridge and site and sweet stories from "bewitching fellow members" (Angkor Wat, Borobudur, Prambanan, the Great Pyramid of Gizza, The Eiffel Tower etc.) Each of these monuments or sites has a magical legend or abstract form that encourages a free flow of ideas, leading us back to the mystery of its creation. The show, designed to celebrate the 30th anniversary, is a sort of birthday party where the aqueduct welcomes its old "listed" friends into its home.
WORLD HERITAGE IS INVITED TO THE PONT DU GARD
This year, morphing techniques and animated patterns form the main mode of expression, subtly transforming the bridge stonework and cliff. The central theme is the bas-relief artwork and the mineral sculptures; polychrome paintings will also be revealed. Each element will be selected from the great names of existing World Heritage sites and given the "Groupe F" treatment, in other words, reinterpreted in a fun, imaginative, playful and accessible way. Let's educate ourselves with joy and good humour, let's share our planet's vast treasures, let's improve our minds by opening our eyes to the light and what it reveals.
