YOUTH OLYMPIC GAMES NANJING – 2014

The opening ceremony of the Youth Olympic Games of Nanjing 2014 will be marked by La Fura dels Baus, through the collaboration of the director Pep Gatell and a team of the company that has moved to the chinese city.

The opening ceremony will be on the 16th of August and will present a colorful version of ‘China Dream’ through various artistic and cultural elements, accorting to artistic director Chen Weiyi. The result, therefore, is a very personal representation of the Chinese dream originally inspired by a walk that the direction of the ceremony did to the Purple Mountain Observatory.

The opening ceremony of Nanjing in 2014 will be a macroperformance with technological elements and virtuals of the latest generation that will transform the Nanjing Olympic Sports Center into a real fantasy. The direction claims that the purpose is that, through the ceremony, everyone perceives the passion and energy that characterizes youth.
