Water lilies on the Gardon

These are funny objects that appear to passers-by in the waters of the Gardon, just opposite the Alès Plage tavern. Spherical buoys, footbridges on the water, foghorns reminiscent, a little, of our phonographs of yesteryear… hellip; All these elements are part of the decor that will be used for the closing show of Cratère Surfaces: Water Lilies. Imagined by the artist Franz Clochard, this unique creation will be revealed for the first time to the eyes of the world this Saturday, July 6 from 10 p.m., between the Pont-Neuf and the Pont-Neuf -Old.

A show which will be accompanied, around its creator, by light shows, an orchestra and even choristers from the Fous chantants who will sail on the Cévennes river, the natural and central stage of the performance.
