GARDEN FESTIVAL 2023
Saturday 3rd June 2023
Candlelight evening from 7 pm until midnight!
At sunset, shadows triumph little by little – conjured by thousands of candles. At nightfall, our candlelight evening will recapture the magic and poetry of previous years… Come and enjoy the pianist’s melody in the château, the warming notes of the brass at the Esplanade and, of course, the fabulous artists from the “Lilou Company” for the “fairy godmother“show. While the gardens shine brightly – the ladies of light will enter the stage, symbolising messengers from a magical world…
To continue this magical voyage, enchanting Indian dances will be shown at the Esplanade.
Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th June 2022
Lotus flowers, glistening colours, embroidered costumes and tabla rhythms…
Indian dances will be hosted in the heart of Marqeyssac’s gardens this year, during the evening of the 4th of June and during the day of the 5th of June. Like a poetic bridge between two countries, the peacocks of the gardens, symbol of Marqueyssac but also of India, will gaze over the 26 dancers in the Esplanade.
Sophie Girard created the “Tribu du Poète”, a dance company from the dance school “La Mouchette”, when she arrived in France 15 years ago. She settled, not far from Marqueyssac, with all the artistic knowledge she had acquired during travels throughout India. From Cochin to Pondicherry, from Jaisalmer to Benares, from Calcutta to Dehli, but also in other countries, more or less linked to the lands of the Maharadjas: Yemen, Egypt, Lebanon, Sri Lanka.
Saturday: 40 minute show: 8:15 PM, 9:15 PM, 10:15 PM
Sunday: 40 minute show 11:30 AM, 3:00 PM
