Chiasso festival Jazz — 2018

Competition, stage design

Damien Greder and Luis Peña Torres


We based our idea on the intention to recreate a magical atmosphere, inspired by the movie Night and the City, theme of the Chiasso Jazz festival 2018. Through this process we recall the strong contrast between light and darkness present in the movie.

The created atmosphere is composed of a stars background floating on top on the artists. An abstraction of the city, an amplifier of emotions.
