Created by the co-founder of Circus O, Johann Le Guillerm, La Transumante is an extraordinary moving wooden creature that will come to life every hour between midday and 6 pm. No nails, no screws, no bolts, no glues, no ropes: pressure alone holds this dynamic piece together. Using three hundred 3m long wooden blocks, Le Guillerm will be assisted by ten handlers and nine local volunteers.
The performance, free as part of the museum entry ticket, will take place under Louvre Abu Dhabi’s Dome and in the Park.
This is part of the Rain of Light, a week-long performing arts festival celebrates the Louvre Abu Dhabi’s architecture and the start of the second cultural season of the museum. The festival showcases intangible heritage and styles from different continents, and it aims to create artistic encounters between performers and the museum’s collections.
“As a museum, we do not only celebrate ancient cultures, but also contemporary creativity from around the world and across art forms,” said Manuel Rabaté, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi. “The Rain of Light festival aims to extend the cross-cultural dialogue that Louvre Abu Dhabi promotes within its galleries, by bringing this dialogue to life through a series of performances taking over various spaces under the dome.”
