During the third edition of the Dubai Metro Music Festival, a talented musician named Isabelle Clarençon, from France, stunned commuters with her unique and mesmerising performance. Clarençon performed under the persona ‘Mirror Head’, which she developed to connect with her audience using reflections and light. Her performance style involved interacting with commuters and the surrounding environment in unexpected ways, using a mirror-like headpiece to create mesmerising reflections and shadows while playing the piano. Her live musical performance called ‘Opio’ included surreal movements mixed with piano, jazz, house, and broken beat.
Clarençon’s performance at the Festival was a hit among the commuters, as it seamlessly blended music and interactive art. When asked about her experience, she expressed her amazement at the energy and diversity of the commuters, adding that it was a unique opportunity for her to connect with people from all walks of life through her music.
Music lovers can enjoy Clarençon’s performance at five metro stations, including Union, Mall of Emirates, Burjuman, Financial Centre, and Sobha Realty, from 4.00 pm to 10.00 pm.
