Gratte Ciel's Place des Anges - WOMADelaide 2023


Held on the traditional lands of the Kaurna People of the Adelaide plains, WOMADelaide - WOMAD - is the iconic open-air festival set in Adelaide’s stunning Botanic Park / Tainmuntilla. An award-winning celebration of the world's very best music, arts & dance since 1992.

Written and directed by Pierrot Bidon and Stéphane Girard.

When Gratte Ciel’s feathered angels filled the sky at WOMADelaide 2018 with Place des Anges, they created a spectacularly memorable WOMAD moment. In 2023, they will once again transform the night skies above Botanic Park with their high-altitude spectacle. Gratte Ciel’s mischievous angels will appear high above the treetops of Botanic Park, unfurling a playful wonderland of joyous music, spectacular acrobatic scenes and aerial theatrics to charm and inspire the audience below. In the magical finale, thousands of softly cascading feathers will fall to the ground, as the swirling figures dance amongst the stars and descend to play with the audience below.
