vagalume is the Brazilian term for »fire fly«. Just as the little creatures enchant the world in the evening, the vagalume Light Figures unfold their unique effect with their magnificent costumes in the vagalume Light Performance. The sparkling and glittering costumes enthral the audience at vagalume parades, walk acts or other performances.
Each vagalume Light Costume including the head piece is
hand-made and therefore unique. More than 150 costumes representing various style epochs from Rococo and the Middle Ages, to the fairy world, are ready for your event.
The costumes are illuminated through hundreds of LED lights causing the luminous intensity with which their magic effect is unfolded. The lights are fed by a battery worn on a belt. The system is suitable to enable a performance also in the event of
light rain or snow.
vagalume is specialised in the staging of Light parades (indoor and outdoor) as well as various Light walk acts and interactive Street Entertainment. We are glad to realise your individual wishes and ideas (thematically as well as for the music), starting with an event-specific concept, casting and contracting of artists, development of the choreography to realisation including accompanying music.
Our top-seller is the „vagalume Apple Performance”: an interactive „Apple- and Fire-Seduction" in the style of a magical ritual.
