Description

Dominating Place Bellecour, one of the largest public squares in Europe, this 17-minute program paid tribute to the life of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince, who disappeared 70 years ago on a reconnaissance mission during World War II. The author grew up a block away from the square, and this installation combined animated projections on a Ferris wheel and adjacent buildings with aerial acrobatics by live performers to follow the imaginary adventures of his childhood in Lyon and beyond.
