The journey starts under the orange light tree then invites us to pass under the up side down garden with his two giant anacondas facing three dancing birds flying over the hills landscape. In a second time we discover the Dome's constellation made of a recycled brushed.The main stage hosting the artists is framed by amazing fountains in sprays of metal shimmering blue.Then we turn over a cloudy landscape where we can observe a monkey, peacefully sited on the land.The journey continues in a vault inhabited by luminous headdresses which leads us outside to a flock of mocking birds. From the terrace facing the sea, behind the bamboo hills appears Doha'skyline.
