1994 Paris is free

Description
Parade and light show for the 50th anniversary of the Liberation of Paris An original form of commemoration, unfolding a 4-km long moving theatre, where actors carried their own lighting and sound systems, Resistants led the way for army tanks, and war veterans mingled with 800 cycling extras and 400 elated young actors... A large-scale, live attraction that had to compete with the challenge of fleeting sensations: a one night stand for enthusiastic Parisians, while contrasting trends marked the audience in the stalls: François Mitterrand, Jacques Chirac, Edouard Balladur. A work of art about feelings and memories, but also an up-to-date portrayal of resistance and courage. First project of the agency proposing a "mobile" scenography.
