"Lady Pomfólyx / Dame à Ballons" is at the same time a live music concert, an interactive street performance and a live site-adaptive visual-art installation.
Lady Pomfólyx (pron. Pom-FO-lliks) or Dame-à-Ballons is the Joy of Life.
She is the colours,
she is the moments of nonchalance, of carefreeness and of blissful oblivion,
she is the optimism that defies adversity and prevails upon hard times.
Witty, fierce, extrovert, a true diva, Lady Pomfólyx rocks back and forth like a colourful bubble (a pomfólyx in ancient greek). Restless and unpredictable, she comes near and flies away like a balloon.
She may chose to leave, she may chose to stay, but wherever she goes, the space around her is "magically" invaded and transformed by defiant colourful balloons, while she fills the air and people's hearts with her voice singing old greek and european songs and arias of the the 1930's and 40's, under the earthly, nostalgic sound of accordion.
When your paths meet, better be prepared to give her your most generous smile, to dance along, to open your heart to the joy she brings – oh, and… to blow some balloons!
While listening to the songs and music and dancing to it, Lady Pomfólyx will invite you to assist her in transforming a pre-selected spot or site (door, wall, window or a street etc.) using multi-coloured balloons.
She won't take 'no' for an answer and she will make sure that, through this joyous interaction with the urban environment and with the people around you, you will actively participate in a highly original collective exercise in optimism!
