Port City Niigata Spring Festival Symphony of Light & Movement2015



Sub-theme: Resonant Light

Port City Niigata Spring Festival Symphony of Light & Movement2015: Resonant Light was the second installment in this annual series. The Projection Mapping show at Minatopia featured footage based on the theme: Culture City of East Asia Niigata. A new addition this year was ‘laser lighting’ along with a fusion of light and video creating a wondrous mood. The waterways along the Bandai Bridge and Minato Sagan were also illuminated with light and decorative objects, enchanting the numerous visitors. For the projection mapping at the Niigata Prefectural Civic Center, video art based on the La Folle Journée de Niigata 2015 theme, "Passion -- Composers we Love" was used. A dance collaborative, Noism2 brought Lim Woobin, who is dancer-in-residence with Noism, for his first live performance in Japan. The entertainment continued with performances from a range of Japanese, Chinese, and Korean artists.
