COLORED AT THE POMPIDOU CENTER IN MAY 2023



After Solastalgia, selected at the Sundance festival in 2020, Novaya presents “Colored” (Noire), an immersive experience premiering at the Pompidou Center in May 2023.

Synopsis:
In Montgomery, Alabama, on the 2:30pm bus on March 2, 1955, 15-year-old Claudette Colvin refused to give her seat to a white passenger. Despite threats, she remained seated. After being thrown in jail, she decided to attack the city and plead not guilty. No one had ever dared to do this. And yet, no one will remember her name.

Based on Tania De Montaigne’s eponymous historical essay, Colored is an holographic immersive installation with Hololens 2 telling the story of this heroine, still alive but long forgotten.
