PUNCHDRUNK-ED

Truly immersive and impossible to forget!! This is, indeed, the future of storytelling. Probably the most significant audience experience I’ve ever lived… Completely changing our level of engagement. I was there for Halloween night, but any night would do. The last two productions left me in awe; whether it be at the NYC or London location, it’s so worth to go see the groundbreaking work of Punchdrunk. A success that’s well deserved. Here below, an article I picked up from the New York Times, portraying their last production… A London... Lire la suite →

Human Cities

Today more than half of the world’s population lives in cities, and many studies predict that the trend will continue to grow in the coming decades, so it seems that for a number of reasons, more than at any other time, urban identity will become increasingly significant in the 21st century.

Flashmob anticapitaliste

Brio et activisme espagnol sur les planchers de marbre des banques d’Andanlousie – stupéfiant! BBC NEWS report : Flamenco flash mobs – seemingly spontaneous dance and song performances – have been taking place in banks all over Andalusia in Spain, causing short, if amusing disruptions to the working day. The brainchil of an anti-capitalist group known as Flo6x8, they are designed to express anger and frustration at the economic crisis.  

Talk about trendsetting…

Traveling often to Paris, crossing at Pont des Arts walking bridge (usually with my boyfriend), I’ve seen the love-locks grow over the years and this is how it looks like now. Some have now even seized the opportunity of a business start-up… On a sunny day you can buy a padlock from an improvised street seller. I guess you can say it’s now gone mainstream!
