    The Carrières de Lumières (‘Quarries of Light’) were carved out over the years to extract the white limestone used to build the château and town of Les Baux-de-Provence. The site closed in 1935 as a result of economic competition from alternative modern materials. The quarries found a new role in the 1960s, however, thanks to the visionary genius of Jean Cocteau. The French film-maker was so enchanted by the beauty of the site and its surroundings that he shot Le Testament d’Orphée (‘Testament of Orpheus’) in the quarries in 1959. The site’s transformation was complete in 1977 with the creation of a new project inspired by the research of Joseph Svoboda, one of the great stenographers of the second half of the 20th century, which was designed to showcase this unique space. For over three decades now the quarries have been home to audio-visual performances. The quarries, which are 14 m high, are the setting for unique multimedia shows (with a new theme every year) that immerse visitors in art. In 2011 the town of Les Baux-de-Provence asked Culturespaces to take over the management of the famous quarries under a public service concession agreement. The Carrières de Lumières are currently playing host to a new performance: Marc Chagall (1887-1985)
