City of Reims
A multimedia spectacle on the façade of Reims Cathedral, that highlights the city’s cultural heritage.
Anchored in history, Regalia is a meaningful experience that respects the site’s religious, historical and cultural heritage while also offering a spectacular and contemporary creative reimagining. Regalia begins with an interactive game that invites the public to closely observe the cathedral’s animated façade, in order to answer questions within a mobile app. It is then followed by a projection mapping spectacle that plunges the audience into the emotional atmosphere of a coronation, following the various rituals of the ceremony surrounding the crowning of a French monarch.
The city of Reims entrusted Moment Factory with the creation of a rich sensory experience that would bring to life the city’s famous Notre-Dame Cathedral, a major landmark in the history of France and a UNESCO world heritage site.
Beginning in 2020, this multimedia narrative will also unfold on the Saint-Remi Basilica, expanding the reach of its current setting. A project conceived by Moment Factory’s Paris studio, in collaboration with the city of Reims, Regalia is supported by an original soundtrack composed by local band The Shoes, enriched by the Reims Cathedral Choir, and arranged by Bruno Bertoli.
