Location: Pēterbaznīcas Street 17

Joyful and playful sun bunnies* dance on Old Riga’s dark, night cobblestones and the greyish red walls of St. Peter’s Church and by doing so, bring the brightness of Jamaican sun to each of us. An interactive light performance that expresses the interaction between the sun, sun bunnies and you, the viewer! This is the chance to return, for a moment, to childhood – playfully running after the bunnies to try to catch them and hold them, if briefly, in our hands. Or perhaps to succumb in another way – allow your thoughts to take flight and let the sun bunnies take you to Jamaica, where the sun shines 360 days a year and these sun bunnies playfully hop from palm tree to beach sand to the Caribbean sea, which is right here, just a door opening away – CocoLoco, where guests are greeted to reggae music by a dreadlocked Rastaman with a smoke in his teeth.

*in Latvian the term sun bunny refers to light from a mirror, ring, watch, etc. that reflects the sunlight on a wall. Children often are encouraged to try to „catch” the elusive sun bunnies…
