The 26th International Fireworks Competition kicked off on 21 May with the French team, Compagnie Pok sous les étoiles. Founded in 2009 by creative artists and experienced pyrotechnicians, the company is famous above all for its original effects, high artistic standard and powerful, emotion-packed shows. The displays by designer Arnaud Fouriau and his team were specially composed to make the most of the individual setting, for instance by producing 3D effects, featuring dancers or actors, or by means of other theatrical elements. This young company proved its talent at various festivals in the Benelux countries and as part of the French national holiday celebrations.
