FALCONs supporting light spectacle for celebrating Aarhus as European Capitol of Culture 2017
Beneath Paphos of Cyprus, Aarhus is European Capitol of Culture 2017. Hundreds of projects will be realises through the year – all with the Slogan „Let’s rethink“. Aarhus will make people reflect, will build bridges between social classes, generations and cultures.
The second largest city of Denmark started with a complex show event which storyline tells of Viking roots up to the future-oriented strategies of today’s citizens. Queen Margarethe of Denmark send out a festive boat parade through the city. This ends at the harbor of the city with a musical light and fireworks spectacle.
For the lighting show Nordic rentals A/S ordered FALCON BEAM 7,000W searchlights from Arts Outdoor Lighting Technology. Positioned behind the DLG silos at the harbor, which also were used as a stage for projections, they set far-reaching highlights into the night sky. Integrated into the dynamic choreography they enhanced the long range effect with their 7000 watts beams of light. The spectacular multimedia opening celebration is penned by Director Nigel Jamieson supported by battleROYAL.
