The history of The Allumeurs de rêves

Les Allumeurs de Rêves, creators of lights spectacles

Reveal memories, draw, conceive, paint in lights, enliven, give pleasure, innovate, transmit, love… These verbs constitute the foundation of the adventure of the Allumeurs de Rêves.

Slide over the images to discover.


Light up thousands of stars into the amazed looks of the spectators… Charm all publics, of all generations…To shine with astonishments, emotions, pleasures, dreams, send out a Wow!… To bind intimately marvelous ideas of « Popular Spectacles » and of « High Qualities »… To Love!


To create specific shows, making sens, adapted to a place, to its architecture, to a piece of heritage, past, contemporary, futuristic… to the characteristics of a population, a neighborhood, a town, a region, a country, a continent, using artworks with unique identities…


Our innovation platform, Swing.LeLab, is set up with the latest materials and logistics, high technologies in video-projections, in transmitters of luminous flows and futuristic sounds, in energy saving, in creations of new images, in new materials of construction of high environmental qualities.


In towns, in countries where we are invited to create lights spectacles, temporary or permanent, we intervene graciously, in school establishments who ask for it, in the name of our schools Emile Cohl and EcohlCité, to raise awareness, inform, show, explain, exchange with the students about these jobs of tomorrow…
