Light & Shadow is the first of its kind. It’s the place to meet the leading names of pro lighting and live production and visualization and learn about their artistic vision. Light and Shadow provides a close look to the technical part of how the biggest shows in the world are coming together in the future.

The founder of Lightpower, Ralph-Jörg Wezorke will guide the audience behind the scenes of some of the largest spectacles of all time. Mr. Wezorke has had a ringside seat to the lighting industry since 1970’s. What have been the most remarkable and industry changing moments over these decades? How does the future look in the post-pandemic world?

The day will be hosted by the legendary Ola Melzig. There are very few technical producers around the world with such a mind-blowing resume. Ola is well connected and a well known figure throughout the industry. Ola is currently working on taking the world by a storm with American Song Contest.

Light & Shadow aims to bring the speakers close to the audience, we want to talk about what we feel is the most essential to the path we are on as designers and professionals. What it is to live the life of a designer and which events have had the biggest impact on us over the years. Sharing with the next generation is very important and that is exactly what this event is all about. See you soon beyond light and shadow.
