Area: Bamberger Tor
The concept is based on the history of Kronach. The area will be divided in two parts with two opposite themes: War and peace. The gate will be a transition area. The goal is to create a dramatic atmosphere with warm colors and hard shadows before the gate to push the spectator inside the city. The atmosphere beyond the gate will be entirely different: the spectator will have this feeling of calm and safety thank to the use of blue colors for instance.

WHO IS WATCHING WHO?
The main idea is to create a “360⁰ theater” that would give a feeling of embracement and at the same time supporting a relation between audience and actors, that are always changing roles. This role change is played with the help of the artists sculptures, Red Giants, and at the same time with the scenography and story that we evolved. The scenery is developed by illuminating the upper part of the facades and making it more dynamic by changing patterns. Evaluating the different perspectives, we created different points of views and feelings from each entrance to the Melchior Otto Plaza.

Warming up the night
Warming up the night is a lighting installation located in Martinplatz where the fire
and the moonlight connect to light up the space. An Orange warm tone of fire and
the mystical blue scheme surrounding the moon by night washes the platz to recreate
an atmosphere that brings people together.

The Heart of the Mystery
is the focal point of the transition between different spaces towards an unknown, magical atmosphere. Starts with attracting people by leading them from the real to surreal world which is the heart of the mystery. Nature is the source of inspiration for our lighting installation. The play of shadows and contrast create a dreamy feeling. Diverse colours enhance to change the mood and the ambiance. The red gate represents the end and beginning of an unreal adventure.

A Journey through the Passage of Light and Shadows
Rosenau street is considered the approach to the Bamberger TOR and the west entrance to the upper town which needs to be welcoming and warm enough to attract the visitors. Accordingly, the lighting concept was mainly based on orienting the festival visitors through the street, which can be as an open gallery, by using the different lighting techniques on the trees and the wooden statues in the passage. Furthermore, and in order to add a dynamic feature to the site, the wall of shadows was created. Its main concept is based on the motion of the pedestrians and the shadow dropping on a background wall. The pattern and size of shadows depend mainly on the distance of the moving persons and their numbers to produce the dynamic shadow effect. Other buildings in the site were illuminated with pleasant colored lights to enliven the scene
