Seven days: A Light concert at Orgelpark in Amsterdam with magic lantern projections of Lichtbende and organ music by Messiaen.
Lichtbende: Rob Logister, Marie Raemakers, Jeannette van Steen
Organ: Gerrie Meijers
Ten old magic lanterns project the magical images on a 20 by 4 meters large canvas that take you to the origins of mankind. A surprising interplay with Messiaen´s organ music. Each part represents one day of the seven-day creation. Each day, different techniques are used to depict the story. The Japanese Utsushi-e and the Turkish Ebru technique, mechanically driven images in magic lanterns and manually manipulated slide projectors. The projection images are created of everyday materials such as buttons, beads, caps and plastics and express a disarming lust for exploration. The audience can see how the performers make the projections with an impressive array of projectors and mechanisms.
