Abu Dhabi, Nov 22 (IANS/WAM) The Louvre Abu Dhabi announced on Thursday that its upcoming “Rain of Light” Festival, a week-long performing arts festival celebrating the museums architecture, will begin on December 11.
The festival will include free and ticketed events, running until December 15, 2018.
A series of performances will showcase intangible heritage and styles from different continents, create artistic encounters between performers and the collection and provide opportunities for visitors to have new experiences with family and friends across the many social spaces under the dome.
“Shortly after our one-year anniversary celebrations, the ‘Rain of Light’ festival aims to extend the cross-cultural dialogue that Louvre Abu Dhabi promotes within its galleries, by bringing this dialogue to life through a series of performances taking over various spaces under the dome,” said Manuel Rabate, Director of Louvre Abu Dhabi.
“As a museum, we do not only celebrate ancient cultures, but also contemporary creativity from around the world and across art forms.”
