This year the French artists will direct from Sibiu sky giant inflatable structures, two music and lights combine with pyrotechnics: “Big Bang” (Friday, June 12) and “Little Nemo in Slumberland” (Sunday, 14 June). “Big Bang” is an impressive visual saga about the birth of the universe, in which artists are meeting on stilts and inflatable characters suspended in a breathtaking aerial choreography. To develop this show French artists took three years so as to design and test inflatable structures that can exceed even 15 meters long. “Little Nemo in Slumberland” is a show with inflatable dolls has a height of 10 meters, which will be routed over the public to their imagination. Little Nemo is a cartoon character created by Winsor McCay in 1905 and promoted a series of sketches in the New York Herald Tribune. Sibiu show recreates a world of dreams and colors that occur with a subtle humor, the most unusual journey of the subconscious. For performances in the Grand Square of Sibiu organizers will bring over 600 cubic feet of helium and will mobilize a technical team made up of over 35 engineers and swindlers.
