Creation of a musical play "Dreams and colors of Heidi Melano"
On August 26th in the theater of Courtine at Saint Paul de Vence, Artamis has proposed a unique event, a live show in homage to the mosaic artist Heidi Melano passed away last year.
This original and unique play retraces the life of the mosaic artist Heidi Melano (masterfully played by Isabelle Servol), her collaboration with all the greatest artists of
the twentieth century, especially with Marc Chagall.
Diana Landi, president of Artamis, brought together very talented artists to offer the spectators an emotional show and a magical evening.
Particularly appreciated Loic Bettini with his beautiful life size puppets and Reine Grace Oath, soprano, who brought to scene the moments of joy, of pain, the doubts and the successes
of this artist. Over the past 30 years working with Leger, Braque, Folon and Marc Chagall, Heidi made the effort to erase herself to better understand the creativity of the masters and
realize the monumental mosaics they asked her to do. Until she decided not to get into the mind of others and listen only to herself. Heidi then realized in an original and unique personal
work that transcends her previous experiences. The creation of her latest sculptures, these double faces, those eyes that fix you, allows you to understand the dilemma the artist was confronted
with during all her life. Marjolaine Alziary, violoncellist, Stéphane Eliot, musician, other major talents of the evening, enriched with happiness the masterful staging of this fabulous evening.
