The partnership between ESAA Duperré and Paris National Opera/Opéra-Université, was initiated during 2012-2013 season and lead to several projects one of which was A Ring in images. Works of the students in BTS Space Design were exhibited in the public areas of the Bastille Opera in 2013.
Students in BTS Space Design, DMA (Diplôme des Métiers d’art) Arts Textiles option broderie and DSAA (Diplôme supérieur en Arts appliqués), Mention Mode – Majeure Mode et Environnement have produced works based on the opera of Camille Saint-Saëns, Samson et Dalila, scheduled at the beginning of this season.
After attending several rehearsals at the Opéra Bastille et visited sets and costumes workshops, BTS Space Design students conceived eight scenographic drafts according to specific guided themes : a love story taking place in a conflict between two communities, two religions, a universal and timeless conflict and Samson and Dalila characters.
Each of the six students of DMA Arts Textiles have designed a costume from Dalila’s complex character.
One student of DSAA Mode et
Environnement has designed a concept of “charnel textile”, based on Dalila’s
song Mon cœur s’ouvre à ta voix.
