At the opening of the Sigma 5 Festival in Bordeaux, the reception room teemed with large quantities of paper confetti, blown around by large fans.

During this event a live elephant came into the room, and the planned expanded cinema performance was to have the elephant stand on its hind legs and display a projection of a Tarzan movie on a ‘screen’ whitewashed on its belly.. But on the day of the festival, due to the elephant’s ill health, its owner only allowed it to walk through the room playing a harmonica with its trunk.
