The CZECH THE LIGHT series kicked-off in Kutná Hora, where 10,000 people came to see SPECTRUM.
Over the past few days, Kutná Hora truly blossomed out. The CZECH THE LIGHT series supported by the CzechTourism agency in cooperation with SIGNAL festival presented the original video mapping show SPECTRUM by The Macula group there perfectly illuminating the Church of St. Barbora.
The original light shows dressing this major landmark in lively colours and unusual shapes took place on Friday 25th and Saturday 26th April. More than 10,000 people came to see it during the two evenings filling the space around the church with hearty cheering. The unique SPECTRUM created by The Macula specially to embellish the Church of St. Barbora entertained not only the light art fans but most of all families with children and other enthusiasts who got carried away by the atmospheric intersection of historical beauty and modern art.

 
After the video mapping shows projected on the Prague Clock Tower and the Church of St. Ludmila in Prague, SPECTRUM is yet another original project by The Macula group reinforcing the group's position among the world's leading light artists. On top of that, one of the group members, Amar Mulabegovič, led a workshop called „Starting with Video Mapping“ in Kutná Hora teaching ten video mapping enthusiasts to create their own light projections.

The first event of the CZECH THE LIGHT series was part of the tradional start of the season event in Kutná Hora inspired by the art of the local bell-founders and bell-ringers this year; it featured concerts, tours of the South Tower of the Jesuit College and a traditional fair.

And where is going to be the next stop? Between 15th and 17th May, CZECH THE LIGHT will present original light installations in the centre of Brno. Follow our website or Facebook for more information www.facebook.com/czechthelight.
