I haven’t yet posted any pictures from the Glow festival of light in Eindhoven, and this is my first attempt to recover the situation. This year’s program is very interesting, it’s perhaps smaller than in the previous years, or may be simply more compact and better integrated into the city. At least I don’t experience such fragmentation and arbitrariness as before.
This particular project, called Rejoice in the Lamb, by Michel Suk, is located in the St. Catharina Church, and combines a stunning contemporary lighting installation with a deeply spiritual vocal music performance. Such a strange cocktail of the futures and the pasts creates an interesting time-looping sensation.
There is short video on their site, but I am afraid it does not convey this experience very well. We’ve been there together with about three hundred other people, inside of this bizarre kaleidoscope, which was quite an elevating experience.
