The Anooki have taken on an extra dimension. Place Bellecour is the new playground for these huge characters as this monumental installation turns the venue into a child’s bedroom. The statue of Louis XIV is nothing more than a tiny lead soldier on the Anooki-scale, just like the genuine fire engine that seems to be the size of a toy. Marbles are scattered across the square, illuminated by the rotating Ferris wheel – a Ferris wheel that has been transformed into a nightlight onto which the Inuit dreams are projected every 15 minutes. The images that appear are often just an excuse to conjure up major global causes in a humorous manner – and especially to have some fun by singing and dancing to Anooki’s latest heady hit.
It’s ambitious to organise a light show in the most luminous city of the world ! A mission the Anooki sucessfully accomplished for the first light festival : Lumieres HK 2017. The Anooki take over the General Post Office, fight with nunchakus, write in calligraphy in a fun and entertaining show.
Last summer, the Anooki turned the Bella Skyway Festival upside down, in the historic city of Toruń, Poland. Watch the Anooki fly up to the cosmos, paying a tribute to Nicolaus Copernicus, native of the city. The little “good bye” in polish, at the end of the show, caused great hilarity in the audience.
French Spring is annual event celebrated not only in Kiev, but in other big cities of Ukraine. The festival of French culture offers a varied program in the fields of fine arts, cinema, literature and music. The opening show took place on the “House of Ukraine” façade, in front of 30 000 people. With a 15′ show, the Anooki set off in search of spring, bypassing all seasons, taking the audience to their magic world. During the show, the creative and crazy Dakh Daughters cabaret band joins the Anooki, singing and dancing with them.
Watch the Anooki come alive and run riot across the façade of the National Museum in a story specially created for the festival and Singapore’s Golden Jubilee. Dance and sing along to their irresistible tune and soak up their contagious energy!
Two years after their successful appearance on Saint-Paul train station, the Anooki come back to Lyon, on a prestigious site. The Opera becomes a must-see of the 2014 edition : people dance and sing on the rhythm of the Anooki’s song. For the second time, the Anooki receive the Trophée des Lumières. Special thanks to the City of Lyon and CNR for making this show possible!
The Anooki are giving a performance at the Dubai Festival of Lights! 45 meter width projection near Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest skyscraper of the world. It’s the swing time under palm trees ! From 20th to 29th of March 2014, the first edition of the Dubaï Festival of Lights is organised by EMAAR in partnership with the city of Lyon, produced by Quorum Productions.
The success of the Anookis shows continues beyond the French borders ! In February 2014 during the Light Festival in the United Arab Emirates, the Anookis will be on Al Qasba: two edifices 200 meter long each, separated by an arm of the sea. The images will follow shortly !
As the guest stars of 2013 edition of the Lyon’s event, the Anookis partnered with the charity association Little Brothers. This non-profit organisation, that celebrated 60 years of existence in 2013, supports old people suffering from loneliness, poverty and exclusion. In the evening of the 8th December a huge mosaic of little lights was lit up. All proceeds from the sale of those lights was donated to the association. The Anookis thanked for each contribution by displaying on the front of the theatre of Celestins a message or the first name of the donator.
The big premiere took place in 2012 on the front of Saint-Paul’s railway station during the traditional Festival of Lights in Lyon. This internationally renowned event attracts every year over 3 million visitors. Eminent designers and video makers are invited to imagine and set up light and sound shows on the city’s buildings. The Anookis played with the architecture of the station’s edifice and made its walls resound with laughter. The creation won the prestigious audience award, Trophy of Lights 2012 !
