Franco Entertainment Group celebrates its 10th anniversary on 15 March 2011.
10 years is the first double-digit anniversary – a first step away from childhood.
Above all, we must not lose the energy bestowed by our unshakeable faith in the future. In the scope of our experiences, we must strive to retain the indispensible nugget of innocence that fuels our dreams.
The first of the two candles on the cake stands for unity, self-awareness and identity. The other is for this closed loop that encircles the world, and for future promise.
Together they represent the strength that comes with being together.
10 years, like the fingers of two hands. Hands that have been shaken with other hands, on every continent. Hands for drawing, exchanging, speaking and building.
10 years, like a breath of air. We have behind us Le Rêve, A New Day, The House of Dancing Water, Décrocher la Lune, and so many other emotional moments, all shining out from the shadows of days gone by, the better to light the way along the path ahead.
Faces, roads, flights, meetings, departures, discoveries, shows, dancers, artists, friends, theatres, gardens, happiness, tears and laughter.
Who is talking about taking stock? You take stock when you have grown weary.
I am ten, or rather we are ten: a little paper boat carrying our hopes and in turn carried by the current; a boat that has grown with your nurturing.
Now, with you all gathered here, it is time to hoist the great sail. With the candles only just blown out, now is the time to get on board and write the rest of the adventure together…
