RUSSIA – Drive commissioned for Moscow lights festival
The Lights Festival in Moscow, which opens on 28 September and runs until 2 October, is themed around the ‘Energy of Life’ and aims to capture 21st century living and the speed at which art, beauty and culture are evolving.
Drive’s creation will be projected onto the Moscow Hotel each evening from 7-10pm and will feature Madame Gaia, the Earth Goddess.
The narrative will be accompanied by a bespoke soundtrack created by Paul Hartnoll of Orbital.
Ben Fender, CEO of Drive, said working on the show has been an ‘artistically rewarding experience’. “We’ve hugely enjoyed creating content for the festival and welcomed the opportunity to create a show with such a strong focus on art and beauty,” he said.
The Circle of Light Festival launched last year and saw more than 350 light installations around the city.
