Marseille 2017 Capital of Sport

Sport and kites

Capitale Europeenne du sport 2017 - Sport céleste

Celestial sport was the subject of the thirty second edition of the Marseille wind festival. For this event or gathering artists and acrobats of the family of the kite of the whole world, a free contest of aerial ballet was organized. Among the pilots of the various usual categories (2 lines and 4 lines: individual, pair and team), I presented in music, an original ballet with my acrobatic single-wire kite, the Switch. Out of twenty participants, it is a very honorable fourth place that rewards my ballet just behind the best pilots world in 4 lines that occupy the first three places. It is therefore possible to perform an aerial dance and to infuse emotions with a single-wire kite in comparison with the performance of very technical gear.

Des Coquelicots sur le Prado

Under a radiant sun and a light morning wind, I installed a Bouquet of Poppies on the sand of Prado de Marseille. The wonder of the children was immediately translated by their invasion of the bouquet of giant flowers.

It was in a steady wind that I realized an unusual arrangement of the O Arches. In association with Eolia Concept and its giant marine creatures, I installed all the O’s around the blue octopus creating an unlikely aquatic atmosphere.
