Aerial ballets in the sky of the Hangar Y 


Kites have been around for more than two thousand years and are a symbol of freedom and open spaces. With nearly a billion practitioners on earth, this object is a true vector of links. Floating in the air, the kite invites to dream, suspended above our heads, it has the power to create a magical connection between its user and the sky. Inspired by the Australian Lawrence Hargrave and the Scottish scientist Alexander Graham Bell, who in the early 1900s was interested in the potential of kites as a means of aerial locomotion, the designer Victor Guerithault creates the KiteLab and develops an innovative concept of cellular kites fully customizable and scalable.

On the occasion of the opening of the Hangar Y and the exhibition "In the air, flying machines", demonstrations of these giant and multicolored kites are proposed on Saturday and Sunday afternoon in the park. Everyone can try their hand at these poetic objects of the air and scatter the sky with dozens of colorful shapes.

Saturday, April 15 and Sunday, April 16, from 2:00 to 5:00 pm.

All public. Accessible with a Park ticket, subject to availability.
