French fireworker: Firework is a great instrument for expressing yourself. Our audience can look forward to a spectacular show

Brno - The last show above the dam in Brno and the third competition firework will enjoy the visitors of Ignis Brunensis. The show was prepared by French team Lux Factory that focuses on emotions, synchronization of music and pyroeffects and also bright and pure colours. The result, show named A night under the stars, will be fired on June 13.

Which part of your show you'd like to highlight?
The main idea is based on emotions which the night inspires. The thread of our show will be emotions that form a whole picture. Our job is to capture and express different feelings of the music.

What can the audience of the IGNIS BRUNENSIS expect? Are there any surprises or special effects in your show?
We do our shows especially for the audience, so we hope it will be an exceptional experience for them. We love to create choreographed fire movements. We use fireworks with very pure colours and we can promise that many different effects will be drawn. But a surprise is no longer a surprise if we say too much...

How did you choose the music for your show? What did you think about including Antonín Dvořák's composition which is meant to celebrate the 100th anniversary of formation of Czechoslovakia? Was it difficult to incorporate it into your theme?
We chose the music based on the dam in Brno because last year we had the chance to visit the site.
It has been very easy for us to integrate the obligatory music because it is very visual and festive. Antonin Dvorak was a great composer who knew better than anyone how to convey emotions. All these conditions led us to imagine this show "A night under the stars".

In which festivals or places have you participated before coming to IGNIS BRUNENSIS in Brno?
Our company is young. However, the people that make up the team have a solid experience. In 2016, we were in Hannover Intertional Competition of Fireworks, and La Grande Motte International festival. Earlier this year, we took part in finale of competition in Courchevel International Pyrotechnic Art Festival. On each event, we learn a lot about these exciting human adventures and meet some extraordinary people. But Ignis Brunensis is a special event for us with a great team, FLASH SFX, and very good work atmosphere.

Where are you heading next after performing in Brno?
On 16th of June, we will play close to Rouen (Normandy). It will be live music performance synchronised with pyrotechnic show, "Chromatic Waves", with our own musicians and composers. After that, we will have a lot of shows for French National Day. We will be busy all the summer.
