The Festival of Lights around the World
Lyon’s Festival of Lights shines beyond the city itself! It inspires other international cities representing a moment of unity for ex-patriated Lyonnais the world over.
Following the Frankfurt Book Fair, at which Lyon and its Festival of Lights were honoured with the illumination of Römer City Hall by artist Patrice Warrener, the event is being exported to Hong Kong on 23 – 25 November 2017 in collaboration with Lumières HongKong. 5 Lyonnais artists will present their work:
Moetu Batlle and David Passegand will present The Anooki Shake Up Hong Kong
Digiplay - Christophe Mayer will present Bamboo Square
Stéphane Masson will present Fish Tank
Yves Moreaux will present E-motion
Vendredi 4 will present Long Striker, the Light Keeper
