Paris L’Été festival returns for its 2018 edition

It's finally time for festivals in Paris! This year, the Festival Paris L’Été comes back full of events: shows of dance, music, theatre, circus, magic, but also installations throughout Paris and its region. Next July 16th, for its opening, a few steps away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni, at the esplanade of the Museum of Modern Art and the Palais de Tokyo, the French artist Johann Le Guillerm will create his installation entitled "La Transumante". Composed of 160 three-meter-long wooden blocks, this wooden creature will be handled by 10 people and will come to life as they move. Another sensational act caught our attention: that of the tightrope walker Tatiana-Mosio Bongonga. With "Lignes ouvertes" (“Open Lines”), the circus artist will take us 35 meters above the ground, for an incredible air crossing between the slopes of the Montmartre hill and the Basilique du Sacré-Coeur. For this feat, she will be accompanied by the musicians of the Chamber Orchestra of Paris. Summer has never been so beautiful in Paris!
