A big congratulations to all our artists, teams, extras and technicians.
This Tuesday, on November 16th, the designer and show director, LUC PETIT, his team Les NOCTURNALES and the TOWN OF BASTOGNE were awarded by the Jury of the THEA AWARDS, the BEST AWARD FOR OUTSTANDING ARCHIEVEMENT in the “Live Show Spectacular on a limited Budget“ category for the show:
BASTOGNE, « THE ROADS TO FREEDOM »
The prestigious TEA Thea Award is considered one of the greatest honors in the themed experience industry.
The Thea Award recipients announced in November 2021 will be celebrated in April 2022 as TEA returns to Anaheim at the Disneyland Resort for the Annual TEA Summit and Thea Case Studies, crowned by the TEA Thea Awards Gala presented by Chimelong.
BASTOGNE, “THE ROADS TO FREEDOM”
With this commemorative show produced last winter, Luc PETIT paid a monumental tribute to anonymous people plunged into the maelstrom of the Battle of the Bulge! After 75 years this showdown between Nazi Germany and the Allies, this hymn suspensed and moved 30,000 people, including the last veterans at the foot of the Mardasson memorial in Bastogne.
The show mobilized and deployed the creative potential of all artistic disciplines and involved the local population to immerse the audience in the strategic challenge and the story of feats of arms, before a final bringing together the people in the wake of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dawn of European integration.
“THE ROADS TO FREEDOM”, because remembering is guaranteeing of the future, because people stop living, when they stop remembering.
