For the White Night 2019, artist Alain Fleischer invites us to come in front of Paris City Hall, dressed all in white on Saturday October 5, 2019, to be part of a very special white ball. All night long, a movie will be screened on us, making us be the actors of a ball for a night.

By invitation, White Night 2019 art manager Alain Fleischer takes over the idea of party Man Ray used to throw in the 1920’s. The latter used to screen movies made by George Méliès on dancers dressed in white, giving the illusion of movement.

Do you see the idea? Dressed in white or covered with a cloak let at your disposal by the city hall, you can join in from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. and be part of this living movie! This proposition will be enjoyed by (grown-up) children who can take over the Place de l’Hôtel de Ville.
