Marseille (F) – Canebière/Bleue + Cité des arts de la rue, 2021 + Friche Belle de Mai, 2019

Canebière / Bleue / Au bout la mer / October 10. 2021

Invited by Karwan and the City hall of the 1st district, Blue Street Pantone invests the Canebière. The St Ferréol  extended street towards the Bourse Centre opens the deployment of the veil which creates, thanks to the numerous audience, a large blue flow towards the Bourse/CCI. After the writing of the word Blue, an acrobatic dance develops around the “M” sculpture, then the wrapping of the carousel with children inside triggers several merry-go-round rides in the blue plane. Arriving on the Général de Gaulle Square, the veil marks the old walls’ trace on the sea side. Finally it settles above the rue de la Tour/Mode in a long velum.

Gilles Viandier deploys a huge blue veil, fabric that envelops and connects human, urban and nature.” Zibeline, Oct. 11. 2021

15h. Ekrem and Amandine and their little Rose, 4 years old, follow dancer Gilles Viandier as he unfurls his blue sheet, plays with passers-by, and even wraps it around the merry-go-round in the Place du Général-de-Gaulle. “It’s hypnotic,” exclaims Amandine.” La Provence, Oct. 11. 2021

Cité des arts de la rue, May 6. 2021

Blue Street Pantone is invited by Karwan (Builders of territorial cultural projects in Provence-Alps-Côte d’Azur Region) for the meeting of the R.I.R. Réseau Inter-régional en Rue. In echo to the 30 meters of lycra fabric, 30 meters of colored waste were collected upstream in the Aygalades stream, below the Cité des arts de la rue… and the river!

Friche Belle de Mai, September 2019

For its 13th edition on September 13. & 14. 2019, the Préavis de Désordre Urbain (PDU) festival moves from funeral to rebirth inviting contributions from all artists of the 12 previous editions and becomes Plexus Rouge #0, a performative festival in the inner spaces of the Friche Belle de Mai in Marseille. Blue Street Pantone takes place as a floating tunnel inviting people to a new birth from ground to sky, led by a creature with pink wonderheel leg boots. Photos: Patrick Glotain –
