TransparenceS devises and creates its own shows.

Working on all possible forms of artistic creation and reviving the 18th century tradition (an era when the glass harmonica and seraph accompanied poetry, reading and operas), TransparenceS creates and stages its own shows:
Benjamin Franklin: Musician and man of science.
Concerts/readings concerning the history of science, the spirit of the Lumière brothers and the Romantic Movement. Wine, Water…the Renart novel…
Developing shadow plays and magical lanterns.
Shows for all audiences, and those chiefly oriented for younger audiences.
Some of these artistic acts may also be performed in German, English or Spanish.

TransparenceS collaborates with other shows and companies.

The glass orchestra and its team also collaborate in the creation and production of other live shows (theatre, dance, puppet shows...). However, they also perform at fashion shows and work with sculpture and image art creators.
The original compositions, the rarity and beauty of the glass and crystal tones, the architecture of the instruments, the original marriage of sound and light which offers a rich potential for contemporary artistic creation and invention. These invitations to imagination and dreams can be applied to the musicians’ very wide experience of on-stage work.
