Enchanting fireflies, floating bottle mail with compliments and cubes that communicate with each other. At various places in the city center of Assen, visitors were surprised tonight with impressive light artworks.

    Who’s birthday, he treats. De Nieuwe Kolk in Assen takes this very seriously. The cultural center is ten years old and tonight the party was kicked off. Not only in the theater, but also in the city center.

    The light art route Axes lights up starts on the Brink. A light installation shows hundreds of flying dots that resemble fireflies. They frolic and float above the ground and make. Cubes dance through the air on Koopmansplein, colorful wheels drive in the Jozefkerk and a whole load of bottled mail seems to have washed up in De Vaart. Dozens of illuminated and rotating windmills, made by children from Assen, form the final piece at De Nieuwe Kolk.

    The light artworks can be seen in the Asser city center every evening between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. until Sunday.
