White Night – Nuit Blanche 2018 at Paris Musée Guimet

For the White Night 2018, Paris Musée Guimet will open the doors of the Heidelbach hotel garden on Saturday October 6, 2018 from 7:30 p.m. to midnight to present the work of the Ascidiacea group, a sound installation that will come to live every hour thanks to ballerina Fanny Gombert from the Martha Graham company!

On Saturday October 6, 2018, the Musée  Guimet offers a special night for the White Night. All night long, the beautiful garden of the Heidelbach hotel (a few meters from the Musée Guimet) will enliven with a sound and visual installation called the Causme Soñons.

Thought up for the White Night 2018 by the Ascidiacea group, the Causme Soñons is made of” a central and totemic structure set in the heart of the garden and the screening on the entire façade of a visual envelop floats, both inspired by a reflective from the museum’s works especially from the textile collections and the sound archives”.

This will be the occasion to enjoy this unknown garden reminding us of the Japanese gardens with these cherry trees from Japan, azaleas, horsetails, dwarf bamboo, Nana Gracilis cypress, ferns and its tea pavilion (unfortunately reserved for some insiders).

At 8:30 p.m., 9:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., ballerina Fanny Gombert from the Martha Graham company will perform in dialog with the Causme Soñons, accompanied by electroacoustic composer Jacopo Baboni Schilingi.

Please note, the Musée Guimet rooms will remain closed, only the installation in the garden of the Heidelbach hotel will be accessible in the evening!
