A video mapping installation by Maria Ilia brings the Northern lights to BOZAR, within the framework of the Nordic Festival.

Experience the Aurora Borealis passing through the ample skylights of the Horta Hall, that was carefully designed by Victor Horta, aiming for an omnipresent natural light flooding in the space. A natural light display from high-latitude regions will be projected on the ceiling of the Horta Hall during the 10 days of the festival.
