Théâtr’Eaux

Théâtr’Eaux (2019)

When you enter the courtyard of City Hall, you are immediately plunged into a mysterious aquatic world. CozTen has taken inspiration from a Breton legend in which the city of Ys, like the lost island of Atlantis, was swallowed up by the sea. Emerald seaweed glistens on the façade while the features of the building are magnified in ocean blue. This undersea expedition is set to music by Enzo Issi under the watchful eye of the stone faces over the windows. At the far end of the courtyard, the fountain is concealed behind a glimmering curtain like the nymphaeum of a sacred spring. The public is invited to walk though this wall of light. The illuminated statues, like extras in a play, usher the visitor out of the sanctuary towards the Opera whose bluish hues gently awaken the visitor from the atmosphere of contemplation.
