The lawn in front the ancient Roman theatres is carpeted with over 4,000 illuminated cotton flowers - the emblem of Guangzhou (Canton) - resembling a lotus pond. Here and there, banana leaves and stylized clouds move gently to the sound of traditional Chinese music like Yu Da Ba Jiao, the title of the installation, taking spectators on an immersive journey inspired by traditional south Chinese painting. After the show, visitors can take a few moments to compose their own version of the song on an interactive terminal. This installation forges a nostalgic link between the past and the present and symbolizes cordial Sino-French relations.
