When the Arts hold hands we have AniMotion

Once again Evelyn had the pleasure to collaborate with artist Maria Rudd in another spellbinding combination of art and music. The most recent AniMotion Show took place on the 9th of September in Evelyn’s hometown, Aberdeen, which provided endless inspiration.

 

The event was part of the city's 50+ Family Festival, with AniMotion's trademark projection-mapping transforming Marischal College, the second largest granite building in the world (after the Escudo Palace in Madrid) into a true visual spectacle. Evelyn filled the college's quadrangle with an eclectic, dynamic palette of music, perfectly matching Maria's evolving imagery. A truly spectacular evening! And who could ask for a better setting?

The AniMotion Show was first launched in 2012 in partnership with the National Museum of Scotland and has since been performed several times around the UK.
