Oda des del cel
At night, La Mercè dresses in fire and colors and offers us artistic shows that have photons or gunpowder as raw materials. The projections shows at the Town Hall, the XXI International Pyrotechnic Festival and the Piromusical, illuminate the Festival of Barcelona. A poem by writer and literary critic David Castillo gives a title to a totally immersive and futuristic visual experience, with the city of Barcelona as the protagonist. The videomapping and synchronized lighting effects that will fill the whole square are the technological tools used by the visual artist Fausto Morales, creator of a global show that has come true thanks to the collaboration of José Vaaliña. Kalliópê facilitated the enjoyment of an expanded experience. Dynamism, contemporaneity and renewal are three elements that characterize this production, but also three virtues that perfectly define the spirit of Barcelona.
"Et veig, ciutat deformada, que canvia de nom,
úter, filla i mare,
bruixa avara del meu amor."
