The main theme of this year's Festival is: AWAKENING.
The 12th edition of Light.Move.Festival. focuses on the AWAKENING presented in a broad social, personal, mystical, mental and physical context.
The theme of awakening appears as a shift in consciousness, both sudden and violent and a slow, arduous process. Awakening is often associated with the rediscovery of underestimated values, a return to the roots and spiritual personal development.
Communities around the globe face the challenge of awakening from the first waves of a pandemic in a rapidly changing world situation. How will we rebuild social relations and face new challenges?
In recent years, we have also been waking up to a new understanding of our place on Earth and our roles in society in the face of the coming climate change. Can we function as before, consume goods on the present scale? What planet will we leave behind for posterity?
We move to the virtual world, we devote more and more time and energy to our digital avatars. What are our hopes for the development of new technologies? Do we dream a good dream while plunging into the net, or are we plunging more and more into a nightmare of appearances, from which it's time to wake up?
