The song of the earth to the stars

Special guest

Japan

 

 

 

 

A universal celebration

The Song of the Earth presents itself as a polyphonic canticle where each voice is evocative of a facet of our humanity, carnal and spiritual, the expression of a call to life and benevolence.

In the image of our Earth, resonant of a powerful hymn to its creator, all our forces aspire to converge in a harmonious thrust towards the infinite crowned with stars, reminding us to hold our righteous place on our vulnerable planet.

Our primary source of inspiration is here, before our eyes, and invites us to raise our souls every day to rooster crowing, morning after morning, like the plowman patiently preparing his land for a fertile harvest.

Arts & spirituality of Japan

Japan, guest of honor at the 1st edition of the Sacred Art Festival of Senlis, invites us to discover all the facets of its thousand-year-old culture
culminating in abounding contemporary creativity.

Numerous and varied events will show how the artists of this country are both carriers of their culture whose memory they cultivate,
and how they constantly create and reinvent themselves by drawing inspiration from their immemorial legacy.
