The works come to life at the Csontváry Museum …The spectators can can see of leaves on the branches moving of the lonely cedar … a breathtaking vision bringing it to life.

The lightwork of the award-winning Italian fuse * art studio depicts the eternal birth and death of parallel universes through its spectacular light installation. The installation of László Zsolt Bordos invites the visitor to a meditative experience of three-dimensional Space and Time. In addition, the visitors can admire the magical garden of light, walk on the carpet of light, control illuminated mandalas with a touch, see a rainbow slide and there will be a “foliage coronation” that shows how to organically interweave forms of nature with light.

Exciting programs await visitors not only in the evening, but also during the day: concerts, street art productions, acrobatic circus performances, as well as breathtaking performances by international street theater, dance circus and fire juggler companies.
Peruvian-Brazilian Equilibra has already performed in more than 20 countries, a fire show reminiscent of a love story, spiced with a rope dance.
We have already met Papito, the diaphragm-moving clown, at previous light festivals, this time he sees his previous success as coming with his partner, Pepe.
Arriving Joli Vyann Company  – UK, creates an innovative fusion of circus, dance and theater performances; and the first variety company of Pécs, Savage Works, is also introduced; their latest performance, MAZE, leads you into a maze.
