Siegen, Night of the 1000 Lights | Sidereal Time

Three things have remained for us from paradise: the stars of the night, the flowers of the day and the eyes of the children.

Dante Alighieri

It is like a journey to the land of our childhood: trees have faces, an elven creature sets a mobile of light balls in motion. Fantastic stories are told under trees.
A sleeping woman wakes up in front of a large wall of shadows. Her shadow begins to perform fantastic movements. Along the way, peep boxes, kaleidoscopes and light catchers await. It is a night of wondrous encounters and poetic moods, intended to awaken a longing for a land where we all once lived - our childhood.

For three hours, visitors can stroll through the castle park, watch performances performed in the Loop, listen to stories that remind us of our childhood days and enjoy poetic light installations.
Theater Anu is looking forward to playing in Siegen again this year!

Where is the child I was,
does it live in me or is it gone?
