Genesis: Escape Into Origins Of Universe In This Immersive Light Show

This incredible light show has been brought from Marseille, France to Covent Garden, London to mesmerise UK audiences since July 28th 2023 … reports columnist Riccha Grrover for Asian Lite International. 

Following a hugely successful stint in Europe in which it sold over 100, 000 tickets, the stunning projected audiovisual experience, GENESIS, arrived in London on 28th July 2023. The experience takes guests on a breathtaking journey to the origin of the universe, immersing them in a 360º spectacle of sound, light and color as they discover the beginnings of history. Tickets can be purchased on the website.

Zurich-based artist collective, Projektil, in collaboration with Fever, the leading platform for entertainment and leisure discovery, brings the experience to the historic and beautiful Swiss Church, London, a building with roots in the 18th century and one of the city’s lesser known architectural gems.

GENESIS takes guests on a four-part journey through the elements of light, water, earth, and plants, representing the first three days of creation of the Universe. The experience lasts approximately 30 minutes and is divided into four scenes: light, earth, plants, and water, all of which are to be experienced while seated on comfy bean bags, as they gaze up in awe at projections that sprawl across the ceiling and walls of the building.  Projektil skilfully employs video mapping, a technique that precisely captures the structure and shape of a three-dimensional space, enveloping the listener-spectator in the ambience. Vivid imagery is intertwined with the moving sound of classical music to fully engage the senses and captivate the viewer.

While immersive art experiences have grown in popularity over recent years, Genesis takes this immersion to another level entirely. The entire ceiling and structural layout of the 18th century Swiss Church have been pain-stakingly measured, calculated and sized to ensure that projections are optimised for the proportions of the building, resulting in a sense of engulfment within imagery and sound designed to completely mesmerise the spectator.

GENESIS invites people from all walks of life, believers and non-believers alike, to step into this escapist oasis in the midst of the city and experience a world in which art, technology and spirituality collide.
