La sentinelle is an interactive installation for public spaces to surprise passersby and invite them to an outdoor open air concert hall magnified by symphonic music.

By tradition, a “sentinelle” (ghost light) is a light source that stays on when night falls, after the show is over. Mainly a safety light, this “sentinelle” is also part of different stories and beliefs telling that it calms the spirits that inhabit empty theatres.

La sentinelle pays tribute to live arts creators and bids the general public to break the infamous fourth wall to interact with this artwork. The installation takes the different sections of an orchestra apart, so participants can experiment with it and discover symphonic arrangement.
