The theme of the Spotlight Festival 2018 was "United We Shine". Based on this idea, we created a proposal centered in representation of the before and after the Great Union and the transition to today's Romania through colors and movement. The colors represent 2 different ways to see the world, 2 different countries, 2 different peoples, that ultimately can be joined as a single element that is more complex than the sum of its parts.
A more traditional or conservative look refers to the period before the unification of Romania, while a more abstract and modern look refers to its aftermath. The idea of both aesthetics coexisting during the projection at the same time speaks tolerance and togetherness creating this symbiosis between the old ways and the new.
