During the night at the museum, one of the dancers on the painting of the artist Degos, gets up, leaves the canvas and walks thru the neighboring pictorial works…She dances with the colors of the canvas…Altering pieces of film mixed with sketches and drawings, demultiplications of dancers form patchworks of dances… A scene from an Argentinian tango, another from a classical Opera, Jazz, then urban HipHop, in a creation of illustrations and animated drawings 2D and 3D… Triumphal success for this light show which received 900 000 spectators, in 5 evenings of the Light Festival 2014!!! This spectacle : « Land of Lights » finishes first on the votes from the 600 co-partners.
