Under the artistic direction of David Pérez and sponsored by Fernando Núñez, Vancram has carried out the lighting design for the exhibition and the narrative-pictorial musical show “Caballeros en la Mar” which took place this November at the Monastery of Uclés, in the city of Cuenca.
This show pays a well-deserved tribute to the knights of the Order of Santiago, who sailed the seas in different missions, including the First Round-the-world Voyage by Fernando de Magallanes and Juan Sebastián Elcano, of which this year marks the V Centenary.
This unique event includes a chamber concert based on the Renaissance music of the 16th century, a staging that incorporates an audiovisual intervention of the space with a dramatized script, as well as a dinner for the guests, all of it framed in a space with over 200 drawings designed “ad hoc” by illustrator Ana Yedros.
The lighting design reinforces the emotions of theFirst Round-the-world Voyage and accompanies them throughout different moments, some of them with great rhythmic intensity and some others full of calm and spirituality, serving as a guide through the different situations that were experienced in this long journey through the seas.
