The team Dirty Monitor took part in the show “TEXAS AGGIES GO TO WAR”, achieved under the artistic direction of Luc Petit, that was introduced as part of the 70th anniversary of the battle of the Bulge on the Mardasson site in Bastogne (Belgium).
We achieved a video mapping on the building of the Mardasson Memorial, an imposing five-point star-shaped construction; the emblem of United States, that was on that occasion covered with projection screens. We retraced the story of 5 Texas Aggies, students of the Texas A&M university, that leaved everything to rescue Europe crumbling under Nazi domination during Second World War. All this introducing a succession of historic paintings made on the basis of archive footage, photos and videos.
Our sound and light performance was accompanied with a pyrotechics work, human performances and also an elaborate scenography that involved the presence of real battle vehicles.
This one hour long show was performed three times in front of a public of over than 5000 people.
This work touched the hearts of spectators by transposing the devotion and the sacrifice of these heroes that have courageously fighted for the freedom of the Belgian people.
We are proud and honoured that the «Texas Aggies go to War» show has received the coveted trophy of "Exceptional event" during the 9th «Trophées de l'Evénement» at the Palais du Festival in Cannes.
