This Eniarof#28 format is quite unique, as it was based on a cultural barge that was created from scratch by Alexia and Nicolas. Taking inspiration from the river theme and the context, a team of Eniarof creators lived on the barge for a week to create about ten attractions on-site. These were then presented to the public on the quayside for two days. As the barge mainly runs on solar energy, each attraction was equipped with its own solar panel and battery.

Therefore, it was directly on the quayside where the public could enjoy:

  • Eniagolf by Antonin Fourneau, An impromptu mini golf competition using found objects and trash on site. A way to democratize the practice of golf, which often consumes potable water to irrigate lush lawns at a time when water scarcity is becoming critical.
  • Vaccinator by Danaël Valbert, Using vaccine syringes, you must shoot targets that are none other than our superheroes during lockdown.
  • Fitness mes fesses by Guillaume Stagnaro, Nothing more than a musical disco rowing machine that follows the rhythm of your pace to speed up or slow down the sound.
  • Mel’eau DiY by Clément Ricart, Since we’re on the theme of water, why not make a piano with water? Dip your fingers to play the notes. This piece was made by our young intern.
