Trois Éléphants passent…

Category: Show Related artist: Oposito

Trois Éléphants passent… is a gigantic parade in three acts inspired by the imaginary world of ‘Transhumance, l’heure du troupeau’.

Seemingly straight from Gargantua’s son’s toy box, three mechanical iron elephants and a squadron of metal Phoenixes make their way through the city, accompanied by the sound of bagpipes, drums and bombards played by a small army of tin soldiers.

Men and women clad in costumes representing the 5 continents take part in this unusual migration. Human-beacons, carrying incandescent red torches lead the way to the final stop: there, a legendary concert will be played as a last farewell.

A show involving the participation of 35 volunteers and an ensemble of classical musicians.
