DRIFT: Breaking Waves

As always Cineshoots did the aerial footage of this breath taking drone performance at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Germany

DRIFT: Breaking Waves at the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg On 28 April 2022 the Elbphilharmonie was illuminated by our new performance Breaking Waves. Hundreds of illuminated drones danced around the Elbphilharmonie and enhanced the architecture in fascinating ways. Visitors could experience the moving light artwork for free from any location around the building. Breaking Waves accentuates our mission of bringing art into public spaces so that it can reach a large and broad audience. We want to create physical installations that allow the audience to experience and feel the art with all their senses. Breaking waves was planned in close collaboration with the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, where we show three of our spectacular kinetic sculptures; Shylight, Fragile Future and In 20 Steps, until the 8th of May, 2022. The plan was to perform Breaking Waves four nights in a row. Unfortunately, we had to cancel three performances due to aggressive disruption of the airspace as part of the premiere. During the dress rehearsal and the premiere on Thursday, the art event was massively disrupted by foreign high-speed drones. There were several collisions and, as a result, numerous drones crashed. In close coordination with the aviation security authorities of Hamburg and Lower Saxony, the show couldn’t go on. We were of course devastated, but luckily we have the video! Founded in 2007 by Lonneke Gordijn (1980) and Ralph Nauta (1978), DRIFT uses technology to make phenomena and hidden properties of nature visible in order to learn from them and restore our relationship with nature.
