For the Armada of Rouen, the Collective Parenthese will hoist the sails of an event that will bring together the dreamers, adventurers and city dwellers of the everyday around the imaginary ocean. Faced with the majestic immobility of the most beautiful boats in the world, passers by will be able to take the time to stop and admire these sails that no wind will come to disturb, like frozen draperies bathed in an intimate tranquility.
The proposed scenography will be organized in a harmonious dialogue between the geography of the site and the maritime architecture. At the horizontality of the sheds, the quays, the water and the bank; meet a succession of vertical lines drawn by a wooden structure of masts and sails that accumulate on the site.

In a stopped movement, these colored triangles prolong the imaginary of the sailboats stopping at the port and diffuse a powerful visual appeal towards the other side of the bank. The shape of the sails is inspired by triangular sails Latin, Arab and Bermudian. Their graphics echo the joyous and colorful aesthetic of maritime flags and signals. Finally, the signage is hoisted at the top of each mast as a flag indicating the different areas of animation.

These sails are interconnected by a mesh of cleats providing shading necessary in this summer period. Colorful furniture develops at the foot of each mast. Their changing shape brings different uses: from the deck chair to the upright to the bench, table, step or stage; the public will be able to appropriate each space.
