More information :

WaterWalls is the first cultural festival based on 'cradle-to-cradle' principles. Organised as a biennial event from 2021, it will be held in Esch-sur-Sûre from July 17th to September 25th. 

Throughout the summer, contemporary artistic creations in the vicinity of the four dams downstream of the Grand Barrage and a fifth one along the Sûre valley will provide the setting for performances, concerts, sound experiments or even conferences and debates along a remarkable landscape.

The theme of this first edition, "Natural Borders", invites reflection on the borders between original and artificial nature, and lends itself to numerous metaphors and questions about flows, currents, technologies, the limits of nature and human intervention, and the consequences of these other borders created by the dam. The WaterWalls festival is thus an opportunity to raise awareness of environmental issues through artistic, playful, participatory and educational approaches.

The WaterWalls festival aims to propose a contemporary total work of art which aims to raise awareness among all audiences about artistic production and its aspects of cultural consumption. In order to respond to this approach, artists were invited to create or co-create in eco-design, taking into account sustainability and circular economy criteria in their approach.

You will thus be able to discover 5 artistic and scenic installations whose design and expression conform as closely as possible to the "3Rs" strategy: reduce, reuse, recycle. 

The performances and activities that take place throughout the summer are intended for all audiences.

The selected artists and projects are :

  • YO studio & Lagerkultur : "STAU“
  • Justine Blau & Stéphane Ghislain Roussel : “Ressac|re”
  • MAD TRIX : “Nénuphars” (Prix stART-up) 
  • Serge Ecker & Giacomo Piovan : “Floating Pixel”
  • Marco Godinho & Fábio Godinho : “Offrir quelques mots à la rive”
