Time: Friday, September 28th, 20.00 – 21.05
Place: Viborg Domkirke, Sct. Mogens Gade 4, 8800 Viborg

At Viborg Open By Night Friday evening on the 28. september, Viborg Animation Festival invites you to the spectacular animated light show on the cathedral. Rewatch the success “The Sky Over Viborg”-
an artistic staging which combines sound and light projections on the cathedral and brings it to life. Experience the usual settings in an unusual way and gain a new perspective on Viborg.

”The Sky Above Viborg” is a graphical journey through the reformation and the age of enlightenment. Using an abstract language of animation, lights, and sound, The Sky Over Viborg presents an insight into the wonderful and terrible Europe during the reformation.


”Himlen over Viborg” adds another act…

The project ViMAPP which so far has consisted of the video projection ”Himlen over Viborg” adds on another unique video projection.

The new projection is called ”Sleeping Giants” and is created by the French multi-artist Simon Rouby.

“Sleeping Giants” is a video mapping show which shows 10 different people from Viborg while they lie in bed and tell about their dreams.

Simon Rouby has a mission: he wants to take animation out of the cinema. So instead of using the screen in the cinema for his projections, he uses nature and architecture as a background for the animation. In Viborg, the cathedral becomes the screen for Rouby’s “Sleeping Giants”. “In this way, the artwork becomes a part of Viborg and Viborg will forever be part of the artwork”, says Simon Rouby.

“Sleeping Giants” is shown after “Himlen over Viborg”.
