Settled in the center of the site, the public is immersed in the image and the sound. It is an invitation to transform and to re-enchant the everyday life. The video images are calculated and thrown from the architecture of the site to give to the concert a unique and short-lived dimension. Beyond the playful aspect, Bratislava 360 transforms the facade of the City Hall of Bratislava. It questions the boundaries between the virtual and the corporeal. Before and after the concert, the public is invited to dance or to move to interact with the images thrown on the City Hall. Bend over to tilt it, bend down fold up, to mash slowly arms to make it wave in rhythm with an electroacoustic music of Serge de Laubier.
