Château en fête - Festival des arts de la rue à Haut-de-Cagnes

Giunto alla sua quarta edizione questo festival delle arti di strada si svolge in un quadro davvero speciale. E' infatti il borgo medievale di Haut-de-Cagnes ad ospitare le numerose troupe di moderni giocolieri, musicisti, acrobati e attori, nonché realizzatori di giochi pirotecnici che ogni anno si danno qui appuntamento per animarne le ruelles e le piazze. 
Nel montaggio che segue qualche istante delle varie esibizioni: 

 

Nella parte più bassa del paese, in place Notre Dame de la Protection era parcheggiato El Camion de la Muerte, una macchina di percussioni acrobatiche accompagnate da un hard rock metallico "cattivissimo"!

e infine in place Wery con Galiléo, grande esibizione finale della compagnia internazionale "Deus ex Machina" con il suo spettacolo di danza aerea davvero magico ed emozionante.

Atmosfera da favola.


Nuit Vénitienne à Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat

Un carnevale in piena estate. 
Ho cercato di documentarmi sul motivo per cui esista questa tradizione a Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, ma non ho trovato nessuna informazione al riguardo. Forse quella più logica è anche quella più banale, ovvero che il desiderio di festa intrinseco alla stagione estiva, richiami in modo piuttosto naturale quello del travestimento, della musica e dei colori che accompagnano in genere le sfilate carnevalesche.
La cittadina si è dunque (tra)vestita a festa per ospitare queste sfilate fuori stagione.

Maschere veneziane dunque, ma anche ballerine brasiliane e gruppi musicali e folcloristici, hanno percorso sabato scorso le vie del capoluogo della presqu'île.

Come tutte le feste che hanno luogo in piccoli villaggi anche questa aveva al tempo stesso qualcosa di intimo e speciale. La sfilata ha luogo in mezzo alla gente partendo dalla piazza principale per continuare sulla banchina del porto.

Gran finale di fronte alla spiaggia con i classici fuochi artificiali che, sparati dal mare, si estendono a tutta la volta del cielo formando veri e propri ombrelli di luce sopra le nostre teste.
