Harbin is a city of northern China where the winter reigns for such long time that it’s also called the Ice City.
On occasion of the 31th ice sculpture festival that took place there, the spectacle « Harbin Discovery of a new world », under the artistic direction of Franco Dragone and the stage direction of Luc Petit, has seen the light of day. The challenge was to surf on this culture linked to the snow and the ice in order to propose an extraordinary journey in the universe of extreme cold.
Our video mapping has enabled to make a succession of a multitude of very various universes during the whole show: Chinese temples, mountain’s textures, fantasy flowers and a lot of other surprising elements…
More than 40 worldwide well-known artists were part of the troupe.
Each evening 1200 spectators came and attended the spectacle that has counted more than one month of performances at the opera house-theater Harbin Workers Palace.
