Michael Jackson is an irreplaceable and inimitable artist. He is the most federative artist of his generation. He is also the greatest artistic revolutionary of his time.
Music, dance, costumes, music video and the whole Entertainment industry have raised the man to the rank of genius.
Throughout his life, Michael fought to defend the fair values, through his songs, his music videos, or conducting prevention campaigns through his two charitable foundations "Heal the World", dedicated to the preservation of the environment, and "Heal the Children" whose actions were intended to to help poor, sick, orphaned or abused children worldwide.
On June 25th 2009, when Michael passed away, millions of people gathered all over the world to celebrate the life of this artist, singing, dancing or simply mourning in silence.
Since then, nothing has been the same...
No one can compare to the magic he brought on stage. For all those reasons, REMEMBER THE TIME – THE LIVE EXPERIENCE is not a Michael Jackson’s impersonator show.
This musical tribute is aimed at the fans of the singer as well as the general public who worships this timeless icon from a generation to another.
REMEMBER THE TIME – THE LIVE EXPERIENCE is a musical and an innovative tribute to Michael Jackson, like no other. It is also the very first French production of that importance dedicated to the King of Pop.
The theme of this show is an original story inspired by the world of Michael Jackson and is also in total harmony with the spirit of the time. A futuristic, magical, poetic, spectacular, innovative and altruistic show. Indeed, around the show, it is a real ecological and humanitarian organization to be set up, a way to pursue Michael Jackson’s lifetime battle.
Michael Jackson has dedicated his life to foundations working to protect the planet. By creating this earth-friendly show, we would give a new impulse to the fight. In each visited city, an environmental awareness campaign could be conducted with children.
It took 3 years to imagine and develop this project, in collaboration with various reputed artistic and technical service providers who are directly in line with the career of Michael Jackson. This project is not anymore a tribute, but a complete and logical continuation of his work.
From the beginning of the work on this show, it was clear to us that we should create something unique and totally new to the public.
Michael Jackson was a visionary. We need to be at his height.
Producing a simple "dance" show would have absolutely no interest; there are already a lot...
New technologies of images and video screens, stage special effects and interactive elements can open up to unlimited possibilities without forgetting or hiding emotions conveyed by the artists’ bodies.
Being ourselves a very demanding audience and in a constant quest for innovation, grandiose and new sensations and emotions, this show is a reflection of our greatest expectations.
Imagining and creating a dream, then taking the audience to the center of this dream. Preparing them, developing their senses, letting them live and feel, involving them, this is our conception of a live show.
This is not just going to be a show to watch, it will be show to experience!
REMEMBER THE TIME – THE LIVE EXPERIENCE will unquestionably be a magic and intense moment full of feelings and poetry...
A unique live experience that will take the audience on an unforgettable journey and will make them relive the incredible career of Michael Jackson, from The Jackson 5 to today.
It will be a one-of-a-kind show. Much more than a show, it will be a real interactive and immersive experience for the audience, starting from their entry into the theatre by an immediate mise-en-abyme, an extraction from the real world, through scenery, sound, props, costumes and interactive special effects.
Wherever the spectators are in the theatre they will all live the show in the same way. The special effects will reach them, whether they are seated on the front or the last row. Artists will fly over the audience, water will fall at their feet, wind will blow their hair, smells will take them away, the artists will make them dream through their emotions, videos will carry them away into incredible universes, the music will make them dance, scream, laugh, cry and the story will move them.
This is an invitation to a journey with the greatest artist of the last decades, in which all human senses will solicited.
