Prague light festival Signal 2013 - Prague will shine, experience it!
12.10.2013, Maria Jagerova
Signal festival is a Prague based light festival taking place from 17th until 20th of October 2013. The festival will invite over 25 local and foreign artists to light up the streets.
The festival will present Prague as a place where modern technology helps to unite the historical Genius loci with contemporary art. Alongside Barcelona and Lyon, Prague will thus become another European centre at the contemporary pinnacle of audio-visual art.
This is the largest show of new technologies in the streets of Prague featuring video-mapping projections, numerous light sculptures and installations, concerts and performances in the Old Town Square, lit up Hybernia building, Ovocný trh, Kampa, the National Theatre’s New Stage, Dancing House, Emmaus Monastery, famous steamship on the river Vltava and many others spots in the city.
The SIGNAL festival will offer workshops as part of an accompanying programme focusing on the creative work with the light. These workshops are designed not only for the artists and professionals in the field, but also for families with children and art students.
This is the great experience, showing Prague in a way never seen before!
