Macao is set to dazzle after dark for the rest of the month following last Friday’s launch of Light Up Macao 2022.
The Macao Government Tourism Office (MGTO) noted that the immersive lighting experience is being staged in 28 locations across eight districts, which comprise the Northern District, Central District, Praia do Manduco District, Nam Van District, NAPE, Taipa, Cotai and Coloane. The final show will be on 1 January.
The event integrates “tourism+” to bring together public art and innovative technology. Moreover, there will be a variety of installations, games, projection mapping shows and themed light decorations.
Macao’s six integrated resorts are partnering with the event for the first time and have each set up light installations. The light shows are also projected on some of their properties’ façades in Macao and Cotai.
Teams from Macao, Shanghai, Hengqin and Portugal are presenting mapping shows. The local team chosen through a call for public submissions is presenting Creative City and Charming Town, which is projected on the China Products Company’s façade in Largo do Pagode do Bazar.
The team from Shanghai is presenting Frozen Bloom at the Macao Science Centre, while The Livelihood Affairs Bureau of the Guangdong-Macao In-Depth Cooperation Zone in Hengqin is showing Tale of Interurban in Largo dos Bombeiros in Taipa.
Moreover, The Starting Point of Integration by the team from Portugal is presenting its show at the Chapel of St Francis Xavier in Coloane. The MGTO pointed out that as the Portuguese team is unable to come to Macao due to the Covid-19 pandemic, its production has been passed online to the local event coordinator that provides equipment and technical assistance for projection mapping.
The four shows take place from 7 -10 pm, with the last show starting at 9:50 pm each night, The Macau Post Daily reported.
