The Long Night of Museums in May at the Museum of Hunting and Nature: Spotlight on Japan

, ,

The Long Night of Museums will be celebrating its 15th edition in France on Saturday, 18 May 2019. 80 museums will be opening their doors for free, late into the evening. Some organize festivities, concerts, shows, films, performances and more for the event. I have noted two major events for this long night of culture: At the Grand Palais, a suspended musical poetry show, Fugue au Clair de Lune, imagined by choreographer Yoann Bourgeois. For the second year in a row, the Museum of Hunting and Nature will be immersing visitors in the world of Japanese dance, music and song, with the performance of pieces by artists in residency at Villa Kujoyama in Kyoto.  As you explore, you will discover creations developed during their residencies, in a mix of live performances and broadcasts of video recordings. The strange universe of the museum, with its many taxidermied animals, provides an atmosphere which is particularly conducive to creativity. Learn more
