To continue the tradition started in 2021, the serene Pārventa centre will be lit up by the most amazing laser lights and video stories

  • From 22:30 to 1:00, the EBRU artworks created in real-time by the artist Anda Kolosova will be displayed on the façade of the building in Talsu iela 41 (“Infirmary”). EBRU is the art of creating colourful patterns and drawings by sprinkling and brushing colour pigments onto a pan of oily water. It is also called the representation of heart melody on water. The promising talent – guitarist Kristaps Prancāns, who attends the Ventspils Music School, will add to the festive mood with his musical performances.

The building and yard of the Primary School No. 3 will light up in laser lights, while the façade will be completely transformed by a specially developed 3D video mapping

  •  This magnificent show will last about eight minutes, and it will be repeated several times from 23:00 to 1:00. The art performance was created by the leading Latvian company of laser and light equipment “ARTISTIC”, the 3D video artist Dmitrijs Voloviks, the electronic music producer Arvīds Saulītis, and the video artist Viktors Keino.
