” We are going forward »Declared Roselyne Bachelot speaking of the reopening of museums. In the meantime, we will have to be satisfied with test concerts which will take place in the spring, in Marseille and Paris.
Test concerts in Paris and Marseille
Will the cultural sector soon come out of the tunnel? This is what Roselyne Bachelot suggested on the LCI set on Monday February 15, 2021. The Minister of Health has indeed announced the organization of several ” test concerts “. An announcement to be taken with a grain of salt since she declared that ” subject to a catastrophic health situation, they could take place in the second half of March “. If they take place, they will take place according to a strict health protocol including PCR tests before and after, hydroalcoholic gel and masks. The Minister also explained that in order to put oneself in situations of ” brewing ” the ” incoming people will be tested but positive people will not be screened “.
These concerts will take place in Marseille and Paris. In March, in the Dôme performance hall for the city of Notre-Dame de la Garde and in April at the Arena de Bercy agreement for the city of Notre-Dame de Paris. These will be concerts where spectators can stand up. According to our colleagues from Figaro, it could well be that the group IAM and other Marseille artists are in the game, at least for the concerts that will take place in Marseille.
Museums and cinemas: when will it reopen?
But culture is not limited to concerts of contemporary music. It also concerns other arts such as painting or sculpture. Roselyne Bachelot also mentioned the situation of museums. They ” will open as quickly as possible. We are going forward », Reassured the minister. Some like those in Perpignan have also gone a little too quickly and have already reopened on February 9, 2021, but they were forced to close by the Montpellier administrative court 6 days later by order of the court.
As for the seventh art, we still do not know when the cinemas can finally reopen. As the Minister of Culture said, “We are moving forward”… slowly.
