New Show for France: ‘La Forge aux étoiles’


45 DEGREES and the Futuroscope are proud to announce a joint project to create a new evening show entitled ‘La Forge aux étoiles’, an aquatic fairytale from the creators of Cirque du Soleil! The show will be performed on a 7,000 square-meter outdoor stage “through a system of laser projections, water fountains, fireworks, and fire.” It is scheduled to open in 2016, play 250 times a year, and run for “four to five years” at the park.

“This collaboration will allow us to pool and share the creative spirit that drives us in creating extraordinary visual experiences, issues of marriage between technology and art,” said Dominique Hummel, CEO of Futuroscope “Approaching our 30th anniversary, this new creation is intended as a gift to our visitors inviting them in a magical universe and unrivaled and unique dream world,” he added.

In the coming months, the team of 45 DEGREES, the company of special projects of Cirque du Soleil, will thus take ownership of the 7000 m² of aquatic scene Futuroscope. “We are excited to work with the Futuroscope to offer a new experience, combining visual and sound technology with water. The night show is custom designed for the Futuroscope, by the creative team of Cirque du Soleil. The Park is an outstanding laboratory for us to develop new visual sensations,” says Yasmine Khalil, President of 45 DEGREES.

This is a panel of visual, water and pyrotechnic effects that merge in the next night show Futuroscope. In a constellation of poetic paintings he will invite young and old to become the privileged witnesses of the friendship between a young girl and a real cosmic giant with feet on the ground and head in the stars. By adding the talent, increased creativity and expertise internationally renowned Cirque du Soleil, Futuroscope reaffirms its willingness to partner with its development talent of big names in the art world, by providing a framework and unprecedented technological jewel.
