Free entrance for a one hour dance creation and a watershow extravaganza by Michel Hamann.
Audience of 8'000 people every night.

«Qualia or the Artist's Life« retraces the status of artists during the four main periods of Western society : from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, and highlights different qualia, those fleeting moments that give rise to artistic creation. 
For example, in the Renaissance period, painters considered qualia to be of divine origin, while in the 1970s artists associated qualia with the effect of drugs.

Choreographed and directed by Valérie Lacaze
Original music by Anne Vadagnin
Other music  : George Frideric Handel, Charles Aznavour, Hans-Werner Henze, Léo Ferré, Jacques Offenbach, Pink Floyd
Script : Raymond Devos
Accessories and costumes :  Valérie Lacaze - Caroline Zanetti 

The choreographer is taking the young Rudra Béjart school dancers on a metamorphic journey from Michelangelo to Keith Haring, including among others poètes maudits, censored or deported artists, and clowns.
Artistic creation, love, death and spirituality belong to that universal quartet that allows us to cross space-time boundaries and explore many dance techniques.

At the end, the young dancers will play percussions in live and dance a dynamic choreography created by Maurice Béjart : " Batucada"
