Jerusalem becomes the City of Light

By Oren Oppenheim for Jpost.com, June 29, 2018 04:19

For the tenth year in a row, the Light Festival in Jerusalem is shining through the Old City and nearby Jaffa Street every night (except Friday night) until July 5th.

Gaston Zahr, one of the artistic directors of the Light Festival in Jerusalem, doesn’t have a favorite piece among the over thirty pieces of light art on display this year in the Old City.

“I like them all because they are [each] very different [from each other],” Zahr told The Jerusalem Post during a press tour on Wednesday night, the opening night of the festival. “I think what unites them this year is that all of them have a big impact. They are not small installations.” He cited the interactive and immersive elements of some of the pieces – including performance art by actresses in illuminated costumes and a large dome made of lit-up triangles, which people can enter – and believes that “all of them are beautiful.”

For the tenth year in a row, the Light Festival in Jerusalem is shining through the Old City and nearby Jaffa Street every night (except Friday night) until July 5th.

The festival is jointly run by the Jerusalem Affairs and Heritage Ministry, the Jerusalem Municipality, the Jerusalem Development Authority, and the Ariel Municipal Company. “This year is unique for Jerusalem… a year in which Jerusalem is definitely on the international map,” Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said in a release promoting the festival. “The festival celebrates a successful decade of millions of visitors coming to visit [the city], from its position as a capital of international culture.”
