11 March 2016, Hotel Sofitel Ivoire, Palais des Congrès, Abidjan, Ivory Coast, Africa

Design of a themed scenography for the Children Of Africa Foundation Charity Gala. Mrs. Dominique Ouattara, First Lady of Ivory Coast, invited for the third edition of the Abidjan gala of her foundation, 900 international personalities from the world of politics and the world of art, honoured by the presence of His Excellency Mr. Alassane Ouattara, President of the Republic of Ivory Coast. That year, the funds raised from the gala were used to finance the construction of 3 reception shelters in Ferkéssedougou, Bouaké and Soubré for children in great difficulty.

The scenography of the evening was developed with the Agence NC.

For this gala dinner with the theme “A Thousand and One Nights for a Thousand and One Hearts”, we reconstructed a Milky Way, clouds of fireflies glittering like a canopy and wrapped the space with drapes to evoke a bivouac under the shooting stars of an Eastern desert.

On the program: an amber, golden, warm setting, cabaret paintings combined with danced sets by Kamel Ouali, concerts by Magic System and Aragon Orquestra, a dinner designed by the Michelin-starred Chef Yannick Alléno… Distinguished guests : Catherine Deneuve, Juliette Binoche, Carla Bruni, Adriana Karembeu, Jamel Debbouze, Franck Dubosc, Gary Dourdan, MC Solaar, Miss France & Miss Ivory Coast and many more…
