Set in the heart of the Alpilles, the monumental “Carrières de Lumières” plays host to multimedia shows that are unlike any others anywhere else in the world. The show "Midsummer Nights’ Dreams" has been designed as a veritable journey through the major phases of the artist’s career.
16 Carrières de Lumières
In the heart of Alpilles, the monumental "Carrières de Lumières" host extraordinary multimedia shows which are unique in the world. Culturespaces is organising an innovative and ambitious project with 4 key aspects:
New high-performance technological equipment for this outstanding audio visual show. Each area of the Carrières invites visitors on an extraordinary audio visual journey made possible by cutting-edge technological equipment and methods developed by Culturespaces and its multimedia partners: 70 video projectors, 3D audio adapted to the specific characteristics of the site, etc.
More surfaces used in the show to give it more breadth and extend this artistic journey.
Spectators are totally immersed in the image projected onto all the surfaces of the rock. We are now using twice the number of video projectors in order to cover twice the wall area. The ground is completely covered, too, and becomes a vast carpet of images.
The new show 2016 → Chagall, songes d’une nuit d’été (‘Chagall: Midsummer Nights’ Dreams’)
Realisation: Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, Massimiliano Siccardi
The new 2016 exhibition has been designed as a veritable journey through the major phases of the artist’s career. Some of the artist’s best-known masterpieces have been digitized and will be screened on the 4,000 m2 of the former stone quarry of Les Carrières. A spectacular experience that promises to be a highly memorable one for the public!
Short show → Au pays d’Alice, hommage à Lewis Carroll (‘Alice’s Land)
The short show takes you on a journey into a wonderful world inspired by Lewis Carroll’s novel: follow the White Rabbit down the tunnel and immerse yourself in a fantastical world.
A dedicated area is used for showings of extracts from Jean Cocteau’s film, “The Testament of Orpheus”, which was filmed in the depths of the quarry in 1959.
