Gijon is hosting this weekend a project of artistic interventions in unconventional spaces born in the year 2002 and named Arenas Movedizas (quicksand). One of the most expected events was the floating piano concert by the port.
La Volière aux Pianos is a French organization founded in 2012 around the work of artist Martin Voël, and featuring music performances using pianos in unlikely places. They have been performing for the last three years in France with more than 70 performances.
The performance “Le piano du lac” took place at the port of Gijon by Martin Voël, Delphine Coutant, Philippe Séranne and the Asturian dancer and producer Mónica Cofiño.
Overall, hundreds of persons enjoyed this unusual music and dance performance for about an hour. Furthermore, the performers invited piano players after the show to board the floating piano to perform their own pieces.
