Participatory Projection

Circus of Light

Ocubo (Portugal)


Roll up! Roll up! This magical projection invited audiences run away and join the circus.

Ocubo invited audiences inside their giant big top for an extraordinary show, projected onto the side of the Granary Building. Featuring acrobats, jugglers, dancers and performers, a magical animated world of music and mayhem descended on Granary Square. The faces of some of the people who live, work and play in King’s Cross were featured in the projection as the story unfolded.

Portuguese company Ocubo, are experts in content creation, 3D animation, illustration, motion design and video mapping. Their work has been shown all over the world, from Australia, to Holland, Japan to Singapore. They were also part of Lumiere Derry~Londonderry in 2013, when they projected a giant game of consequences (created with the participation of children from local communities) onto Ebrington Clocktower.

During Lumiere London 2016, visitors were invited to take the perfect picture at the Land Rover Private View of this festival installation.
