AURORIUM - GENESIS - More than Classic

After several successful and very popular productions by More than Classic and Projektil in Zurich in recent years, we are happy to present you the next highlight in Bern:

Experience the entire story of creation up close in our shows with a 45-minute live concert - from the creation of light to the birth of the plant world and the animal kingdom to the first humans. Thanks to our work GENESIS and its use of multiple high-power projectors, the historic Church of the Holy Spirit is transformed into a stunning backdrop where you can witness the story of Genesis through an audiovisual and immersive light show like never before.

The two musicians from More than Classic, Isabel Gehweiler (cello) and Yulia Miloslavskaya (piano), will provide musical accompaniment to Projektil's fascinating light show and fill the Heiliggeistkirche with wonderful sounds. On the exclusive concert evening, the young duo will play well-known melodies by Rachmaninoff, Pärt, Schumann, Piazzolla and others with great virtuosity and romantic mellowness.
