FUTURE RISING PARIS - TUESDAY, MARCH 6 2018
For the W Paris - Opéra edition of our Future Rising series, we welcome Grégory Robert, from Radio Fleur and the FlowerBoys for a one off night of talks and music.
The event will take place at Brulé.
"A change is coming and artists are ready to lead the way"
Gregory Robert's idea of Wonderland is one where music, art, dance and fashion co-exist in his Pink Vision, and we'll see this come to life on March 6 at W Paris – Opéra.
Along with a musical performance by violinist Safia Zimouche and DJ set from Andy 4000, Gregory will celebrate his Pink Vision with a performance by two dancers from the trailblazing Parisian crew Enfants Prodiges, who will share a kinetic energy with the audience and Gregory. In addition to this, a bespoke video art piece will be commissioned for the event, created by Future Rising artist Serapis J. Dirat, with the abstract animation embodying Gregory's vision and projected throughout the night.
Join us for a memorable musical event featuring Safia Zimouche and DJ Andy 4000.
