Po l’occhio ("Open Your Eyes" in English) is a show that combines cutting-edge multimedia techniques, projections on water screens and interactive live performance.

This show will be performed for free at nightfall: 

  • 9 August at Place Séraucourt, Bourges
  • 16 August at the Hippôdrome, Chartres
