Voices In The Dark - New Version
Believe in what you see. Or take nothing at face value: While gliding through surreal dream worlds with floating islands, the viewer immerses in a magical universe in which reality seems to be constantly morphing into something else altogether. A chessboard mutates into metropolis that seems to permanently reconstruct itself. A desert landscape turns out to be a crowd of people, or is it a projection screen? Frescoes begin to live and tell their story. Tarot cards come to life, a postcard forms the gateway to a sunken city, and ballet dancers float in virtual worlds. A symphony of sounds, images and emotions takes the viewer into a mysterious new universe.
Experience a fascinating world that comes to life through the music of Mike Batt. A team of world-leading 3D designers, draftsmen and video artists have combined Batt's epic-musical works with spectacular 360-degree imagery for the Star Dome. "Voices in the Dark - New Version" takes you to completely new audiovisual dimensions and surprises you time after time until the very last minute. In Planetarium Hamburg, you will experience this award-winning masterpiece from 2008 in a revised, redesigned and edited version which contains new sequences, including the world hits "Bright Eyes" and "Lady of the Dawn".
