January 4th 2015 : The place chosen was the peristyle chapel, usually closed to the public which was exceptionally open for three weeks.
An enigmatic installation by Anne Poivilliers awaited the visitor there: long transparent and diaphanous filaments descending  from the vault of the chapel.

Valérie Miquel CID Member presented a choreography inspired by the installation of Anne Poivilliers and the strong spirituality of the chapel
