Simon Frezel and Martin Julhes are respectively audiovisual creator and coordinator in the OPLA collective.
Created in 2005, in Lyon, the organisation specializes in the conception and the production of artistic and cultural projects which their common aim is to be seen in unusual places, especially in the public space. They have organized since 2007 the street art festival of cinema and of musics of today.
Former editions of the Fête des Lumières:
2011 : « Magic Forest » - Boulevard de la Croix Rousse
2013 : « Magic Forest 2.0 » - Square Descours - Lyon 6
Created by children from the Croix-Rousse Children’s Centre, luminous creatures and sounds from the Magic Forest have found refuge in this city square. Each bush conceals fairies and goblins that whisper, move and light up the space, giving it a mysterious, dreamlike quality.
