Llum is the Catalan word for light and Llum BCN is a new festival of light to coincide with the revived feast day of St Eulalia, patron saint of Barcelona.  There for a school visit to Barcelona we encountered the collaborative work of Onionlab and Smow called Dansem amb la llum és (Dance is Light).  This was an extraordinary reanimation of the Placa St Jaume in Barcelona’s historic centre.  The play of light on the building, great energy in the moving light projections and excitement was capped off  by an final sequence that illuminated a great swathe of smoke like giant swirling maps – beautiful.
