Extérieur jour - Day exterior

Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture 2013

Extérieur Jour, fenêtre ouverte sur le monde [Day Exterior, window open onto the world] is a production created as part of the programme of events for Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture 2013. Through an interactive, innovative conception in which performing arts and technology are involved with contemporary imagination, it corresponds to the general public’s new practices, behaviour and expectations regarding culture and the arts.

The scenographic design of Extérieur Jour takes the form of a tower located on the Vieux Port harbour, facing the existing Roi René Tower. 400m2 of screens cover the tower’s North and East facades to present original new works from various artistic fields. For this event, n + n Corsino are putting together a team composed of developers, computer graphics technicians and engineers within their research and creation platform.

This creation is punctuated by regular slots and events news, and the images vary in real time according to environmental data. Combining works designed in advance and works produced in real time, it involves Mediterranean artists covering various forms of expression such as writing, choreography, calligraphy and photography. It brings together local and international cultural partners. It involves high school students in participatory actions, and it links up with other long-term and medium-term projects. The public is occasionally led to interact with the content by means of free apps for smartphone.

This establishes a sensitive dialogue between audience and artists in the area covered by Marseille-Provence European Capital of Culture 2013.
