Design and production of a visual and sound show desired and conceived as a journey through passion and the senses. A true hymn to love through the glorious radiance of the rose, the universal symbol of love. Music, song and art all come together for a joyous journey to the very heart of love and emotions. The intermingling of this trio of arts, the creation of a palette of colours, sounds and emotions, together celebrate the various faces of love, from East to West.

So what is love ? “It is the height of madness and wisdom” Edgar MORIN “Love, poetry, wisdom”
This show takes us on a real journey through the senses, a journey where music, song and painting intermingle to give us a palette of colours, sounds and emotions, around the theme of love, sung and interpreted in its different forms, from East to West.

Love makes us all dream, it gives us wings, a sense of fulfilment and allows us to transcend ourselves. It is the first part of the musical programme which depicts the romantic love that makes us dream.
But love can also inflict the worst kind of suffering and lead us to our downfall. Hasn’t it ever happened that we «die of love» ? Literature, music or opera (Puccini…..), sublimate impossible love, because sometimes love ends in a real tragedy : one of two lovers sacrificing himself for love. This second part illustrates «dramatic love», «sacrificial love» and «tragic love».
If love is the powerhouse of passion, generating intense moments of joy, extreme happiness and harmony, it can also sometimes sow the seeds of sorrow. But, honestly, isn’t it worth it ? The third musical part talks of «passionate love» ….
Then the performance ends with a light musical touch. Yes, love can also be frivolous, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t make us happy ! It can also allow us to enjoy ourselves, to lessen the weight and monotony of our daily lives. This fourth part portrays the lightness that love can sometimes bring.
