The 2013 Travelling Show was launched this Spring Equinox in the historical Iglesia St Marcos of Toledo Spain. It will finish this autumn in Paris with a celebration on the Autumn Equinox.

Because of limited space we will be exhibiting in a few Parisian places this autumn.  Artists from ‘The Travelling Show’ not in this show will be exhibited in another. TO BE ANNOUNCED.

Thirty of the the 94 pieces will be on display at “La Porte Soleil” from September 13th to October 5th 2013 (This selection consists of pieces not yet exhibited in the Gallery. Priority was given to D & D artists attending.)

OPENING WITH CONCERT: September 13th at  18 :00

Acoustical interactive concert with Axel Lecourt : 19:30

From the Mouth Harp to the Pygmy flute, Axel Lecourt engages us in the rites, rhythms and sounds of the Virgin Forests from Gabon to the Amazon. Through a collective improvisation he will take us on a voyage filled with the sounds of birds and unusual instruments, a testimony to his love for Nature and Life.

EQUINOX CELEBRATION: 21 Septembre at 19:00


A moment of Gratitude for the changing season and the art, music, wisdom, love and  appreciation we’ve had on this travelling show from Equinox to Equinox.


“Soleils Intérieurs” – Voyage into the heart of the chakras and the elements.

See, hear, smell..-Michel Roudnitska combines a High Definition video projection of digital images ( fractals, particles) and images of Nature and associates them  with sound and aromas created specifically for the given chakra or element.  The combination immerses us in a multi-sensorial experience.
