Laterna Magica 2017 - Théâtre du Centaure - Fotokino, Marseille.
This experience has been a pleasure. I was a FOTOKINO fan since I first arrived to the south of France and was excited to receive their invitation. Not only I loved working with their team I also appreciated the offer of working in such a beautiful space: Théâtre du Centaure, Marseille.

In December 2004, Fotokino proposed the first edition of Laterna magica, a transdisciplinary and undisciplined event offering 4 weeks of images and imaginations in Marseille for everyone. Exhibitions, screenings, workshops, meetings ... Since 2013, Laterna magica integrates the official program of the European Capital of Culture and is available throughout the year.
Théâtre du Centaure is a family of equines and humans who have built together a community of life and creation. Village, stables, workplace, ten people, and ten horses work every day to achieve a utopia. Obviously, the Centaur does not exist. It is the utopia of a relationship, a symbiosis to be one to two. "It is impossible because it is a utopia"
After the performance, we added white surfaces all around and the public drew with their fingers on the windows. it was an amazing moment, since it became very clear that painting could never die since people of all ages origins and background were drawn to the action. it's clear that drawing lives in all of us, we just need to create the right context to release it...
