Created and directed by Kevin Finnan MBE, Artistic Director of Motionhouse, Lumen celebrated the people of Timișoara, who shine as the constant light of the city during the flux in the country’s recent history, reflecting the theme of the celebrations, ‘Shine your light’.
We are renowned for our work in unusual non-theatre spaces and Lumen saw us work with local choirs and community groups to bring to life the dock. A giant aerial spectacle of boats, flying bicycles, construction workers and a flying room, all suspended from cranes, were just some of the thrilling elements that wowed the audience. This, combined with incredible digital projections by our long-term collaborator Logela, helped us to tell the story of the city over recent years – a poignant celebration for the city’s residents.
More than 23,500 people watched the show over 3 nights.
