This is the key event of the day – a three-dimensional performance, a visual firework broadcasting directly on the museum building's facade, for the first time ever in the city of Bergen!

With us, you will be able to swim with the whales in the deep ocean, see the flowers grow outside the windows and experience the museum building collapse. It will be exciting, a bit scary, beautiful and impressive.

We will show the performance three times during the evening.
