MACAO, December 25 – 【DST】 Macao Light Festival 2021 – Travelers from Mars
“Macao Light Festival 2021 – Travelers from Mars” continues to illuminate and animate different local communities in a festive atmosphere, bringing together residents and visitors to celebrate the New Year and welcome the arrival of 2022.
Tokyo and local teams enrich the aroma of Taipa and Coloane with projection mapping
Among the four thematic projection mapping shows of the Macao Light Festival 2021, two take place in Taipa and Coloane. A performance team from Tokyo presents “GLID” at Largo dos Bombeiros in Taipa while a local performance team presents “In Pair” at Saint-François-Xavier Chapel in Coloane, drawing crowds of spectators.
Due to the pandemic situation, the Tokyo team were unable to travel to Macau in person but have transmitted their production via the internet to a local coordinator who provides equipment and technicians to help with the projection mapping.
Map projections, along with light installations and interactive games, enrich the unique aroma of the communities of Taipa and Coloane. There is “House of Popular Slangs” at the Carmo Fair, “Cosmic Kaleidoscope” at the Arch of the Historic Center of Vila da Taipa, “Weekend Love” at the Chapel of St. Francis Xavier and Largo Eduardo Marques as well as “Sand painting in the light” at Largo do Bazaar, among others. The beautiful encounter between the art of light and the unique aroma of the communities attracts many residents and visitors for photo ops.
