PYROLANDIA, Roskilde Light Festival, (2010)

Pyrolandia is a large fire, music light and dance installation, a magical landscape created by artists cooperative illutron. Normal everyday rules are bent and the audiences’ unbridled wild dance in honor of the fire god results in eruptions of uncontrollable pyrotechnic reward.

The installation consists of a large central multi fuel cannon which with computer controlled valves can give different types and durations of flame.

Around the central fire cannon are three warm, protective cocoons, where three goddesses live. Goddesses who must be warmed, touched, have life breathed into them in order to bring fire, light spring and sun back to the land. The audiences physical contact with the goddesses controls the light, sound and fire.

Performances the 12th and 13th february at 18, 20 and 22.
