Burning Snow

Burning Snow is the name of the official inauguration ceremony for Umeå2014. The Capital of Culture year will be launched at 5 o’clock on Saturday evening with a show to set Umeälven artistically ablaze.

You can find information about accessibility broadcasting in the visitor details page.

The ceremony will be held on and around Umeälven, directly below Rådhusparken in central Umeå, which is where you as a spectator should head for. Simply take in and enjoy the story of a meeting between high tech design and the future and raw nature and tradition. A choreographed festival of light, music, song and movement.

Just like the rest of the Capital of Culture year, the ceremony has an element of co-creation. Everybody is welcome to take part in the co-creation project, which is the basic theme of the inauguration hour.

Dramaturgy and production: phase7, Berlin
