For one day, the French Embassy´s iconic fifth avenue mansion will be transformed into an inventive and creative space where young audiences can exercise both mind and body. In the morning, philosopher Simon Critchley will orchestrate a forum of ideas with small groups of budding intellectuals. The afternoon will turn to dance, starting with Ballet (NY) by Jérôme Bel and opening up to an interactive ball for families and children by world-renowned choreographers Bouchra Ouizguen and Miguel Gutierrez.
