Fountains dancing to Chopin music

A show of water and light synchronised with Chopin’s music. The choreography was inspired by musical atmosphere, tempo and phrase.

The fountains' operations are not a mere mechanical process but a result of a creative interpretation of the water's silhouette in mid-air. Each musical piece performed is illustrated with a specially-devised fountain routine. The show is computer-controlled. It is possible to control the show live. Duration: 20-30 minutes. Watch the fountains dancing to Fryderyk Chopin's Scherzo Op. 31 in B-flat minor.

Open air show

Technical requirements
Possible to be executed either with the use of a 17-meter or a 34-meter fountain (the length of the sheet of water).
Fountain height: 2-8 meters.
Detailed requirements necessary to execute the show are available at Own audio equipment.

Previous executions of the project
The show has been performed since 1995, in Poland and abroad, to different kinds of music, ranging from pop, to jazz, to electronic music, to the classics. Since 2006, the show has been regularly presented at the Mozartiana Festival in Gdańsk Oliwa.

We are the only entity in Poland to produce and execute a show of this type and one of a few in Europe.
