Rendezvous Federal Plaza 2017 “RESET”

What began 500 years ago turned the world upside down and changed the course of history: the Reformation’s reverberations are felt until this day, as we celebrate its big jubilee. And so, the façade of the Swiss Federal Parliament Building (the Bundeshaus) will also be illuminated by the light of this very special star. “Rendezvous Bundesplatz,” the seventh edition of the light and sound extravaganza Starlight Events, is all about new beginnings. Back to forward: “RESET” on the Federal Plaza (Bundesplatz). From October 13 to November 25.

We are in the Renaissance age, on the cusp of the modern era, leaving the Middle Ages behind us. The time frame: the late 15th and early 16th century. Some of the most important events of world history are about to occur: the discovery of a continent heretofore unknown in Europe, the invention of the printing press with movable letters – and the birth of a new faith that will tear the Catholic Church apart.  A faith that will take away the almost limitless power the pope and the Roman clergy had over Western Christianity for centuries.  The triumvirate of the Reformation steps on the world stage: Luther, Zwingli, Calvin.

It is the fantastic story of a new beginning, of a struggle for faith and power. A story told by light and sound on the façade of the Federal Parliament Building. In cooperation with Casa Magica from Tübingen and technical partner Auviso from Kriens.
