Commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of the Republic of the Congo and Gabon

BRAZZAVILLE & LIBREVILLE  14/08/2010 - 16/08/2010

GL events stages the commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of the Republic of the Congo and Gabon with two shows celebrating the culture, people and history of the two countries.

Commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of the Republic of the Congo: a show for the Congolese, made by the Congolese!
On14 August 2010 in Brazzaville, GL events, via its subsidiary Market Place, directed the anniversary to celebrate independence of the Republic of the Congo and produced a 55 minute show using frescos and giant images covering several thousand square metres. The technical team from France worked with local technicians so as to transfer new know-how that the country wishes to acquire.

In 12 living pictures, the 1,000 Congolese artists and extras told the tale of the land, the peoples, the history, the music and the artists of the Congo. The grand finale built a bridge between yesterday and today, a bridge between all cultures, a bridge between men.

The ceremony was watched by 15,000 spectators from the country's twelve departments and was broadcast live on giant screens set up around the city as well as on Congolese TV.

Commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the independence of Gabon: a historical fresco on Land and Sea.
For the 800 official guests, GL events created a historical fresco lasting 50 minutes narrated by an old man and his grandson, and involving 170 local artists, actors, musicians and singers as well as 350 extras.
On16 August, impressive technical resources were put in place for this show staged on land and sea, and which was broadcast by the national TV station: 140 metres of open stage front, 2 water screens covering 55 metres, 4 monitor screens, 12 high-power video-projectors, long distance video capture using 6 cameras, ultra-directional sound broadcasting, high-tech lighting. In total, some 45 tonnes of equipment were shipped from France for the occasion and set up by 150 French and Gabonese technicians.
