[Radio.Nica] performed on February the 4th 2019. in Cultural Center GRAD opening the festival Belgrade of Light. It was a great pleasure and opportunity to meet an amazing audience and share some visual poetry inspired by Petar II Petrović Njegoš metaphysically / philosophical poem "Luča mikrokozma / The Light of the microcosm".
The performance is called "The BOX / Q | Ti | Ja" and it combines:
music / circus / dance / liquid light show / poetry / alchemy / ambient music / light design / analog lights / hand torches / hand lasers / crystals / reflective surfaces etc.
The crowd was amazing and the house was full, so that we had to perform 3 times in a row in order to present it to everyone who wanted to see it.
What a night that was!

-[ Radio.Nica ]- a light design artistic group
-[ Radio.Nica ]- is a flexible and constantly evolving group of artists with different backgrounds (theater directors, designers, dramaturges, performers, circus artists etc.) experimenting with light design. We play with variety of light sources, mostly analog, old and new, common and unusual. We perform and make magic with liquid light shows projected from overhead projectors, and we sparkle light through hand torches, lasers, kaleidoscopes, glass crystals and other fine and reflective material.
The group was spontaneously created after the first light design workshop organized for Student Theatre Festival in Belgrade (FIST) that was held in 2005.
I (Nikola Zavišić) named the workshop: "The Space of Light / The Light of Space" and after it was over, we (some of the participants and me) decided to go on with it, in different forms, putting always new and different ideas about playing with light on test.
