The 28th of March Nijmegen, on Waal
In the Netherlands, the city of Nijmegen is a meeting point between land and water. The river Waal is outlined in the heart of an urban and industrial landscape that doesn’t cease to develop. However, during the last decades, successive floods damaged the territory. In order to guarantee the growth of the city and an attractive living environment for its inhabitants, large river improvements and neighborhood renovations were initiated.
At the end of these constructions, the city decided to offer a show that tells the great milestones of these renovations. On the 28th of March, Les Orpailleurs de Lumière will celebrate with music and video mapping the new face of Nijmegen. An impressive screen will emerge from the river waal, showing drawings and poetry inspired by history.
