At the Raffinerie the industrial and enclosed space is deprived of a place where the public can gather between performances. The challenge for this commission was to create such a place. It welcomes the excitement of the public in a suspended time between the ordinary moment in the street and the imaginary moment of the performances. The scenography entitled Spring Cloud is a refreshing space, ideal for the festival which takes place in spring. A new white atmosphere detaches the building from its past and offers lightness to the festival. The white clouds evoke the image of cotton candy, and spring colors such as pink and white cherry blossom brings light into the enclosed space of the building. The white floor enhances this gentle ambience. The bar and furniture are constructed of wooden pallets offer ample space at the bar and reception area where people can sit and eat. The use of natural untreated wood combined with the white space creates a pleasant harmony. The natural coloured light (with tones of blue, white and warm yellow) filters through the spring clouds which reflect onto the white floor. This effect is refreshing for both performers and audience. The bar area remains slightly less illuminated than the stage, using warmer light. ARTE Belgium recorded Compil d'Avril for a programme entitled 50 Degrees North on Tuesday, April 5 to Friday, April 8, on 7:55 p.m. to 8:40 http://www.arte-belgique.be/50dn/ Place : Raffinerie, Bruxelles, Be Scenography : Shizuka Hariu / SHSH Production : Charleroi Danses Performance : ZOO / Thomas Hauert, Drum & Dance and Prepared play by ear ; Michiyo Yagi with Eric Thielemans and Hugues Vincent, Stings, Skins and other interesting things ; Eugène Savitzkaya, Contre l'homme Photography : SHSH / Arte Belgique - émission 50 degrés Nord
