Theater director, Nikola Zavišić gathered a group of various professionals: architects, designers, dramaturges, performers, circus artists, actors etc. Together, they made liquid light show projected from overhead projectors, and achieved mesmerizing light effects using hand torches, lasers, chemicals, kaleidoscopes, glass crystals and other fine and reflective material.

Combining Njegos’s philosophy, light experiments and circus elements, this performance is one in a lifetime experience. The interest was very high and they performed 3 times in a row that night. Luckily, their plan is to continue with performance outside of light festival so you can follow their updates here.

THE WAVES / WEAVING THROUGH THE SOLAR SYSTEM

As an introduction to astrophysicist Nataša Todorović’s lecture Weaving through the Solar System, visual artist Aleksandra Stratimirović and Argentine experimental trumpet player Leonel Kaplan joined together to perform The Waves.

The Waves is synergetic light & sound performance that combines Stratimirović’s dynamic light installation and Kaplan’s trumpet improvisation. The experience transcended into a journey trough the outer space.

Weaving through the Solar System lecture is about the significance of light from the science perspective. Nataša presented the ways astrophysicists collect data about the outer space with the help of light and spoke about the sunlight’s acting force.

ISKRA.KOZMA

Art collective Lansiranje brought a young energy to premises of KC Grad with light-embedded performance which was leading into the all-night party.

Lansiranje created their own world, inspired by “The Ray of the Microcosm” - a romantic, cosmic-religious poem. They explored and questioned sparks in space and ideas that are hiding behind them.

They broke boundaries between visitors and performers by welcoming everyone to their unique world in which parties are extraterrestrial themed.

Using 3D architectural tools, he worked with transparency, lighting and color to distort, reflect and manipulate the composition of the image. His work communicated between the real and virtual space, seamlessly connecting them together.

Artists, light designers, architects, photographers, art historians, theater directors and others joined together to find lighting hero or villain of the city. We are so happy becoming official Transnational Lighting Detectives and having an opportunity to contribute to the Lightscapes discussion.
