Ring-Ring is a textless performance in which live music, poetic light images and theater merge before your eyes into a cinematic fairy tale.

Bicycle bell Ring-Ring is lost. He searches for his bicycle along fairytale-like but also dangerous places. A touching adventure full of happy but also tricky moments with strange creatures and unexpected encounters. Whether his quest is rewarded remains exciting until the end.

Lichtbende has playfully based Ring-Ring on Richard Wagner’s Der Ring des Nibelungen. But now in its own unique way, full of eye-catching visual and musical finds. The music of Ring-Ring has been specially arranged for this performance and composed for accordion, percussion and live electronics. Leading motifs from the opera become as strange and surprising as the images in this story.

Lichtbende is known for its poetic performances with a unique combination of manually animated projections and live music. All acts of the artists are visible to the public. Everyday materials transform into lively characters. A fusion of visual art, theater and music. Stories of pure imagination in which the use of language becomes superfluous. Lichtbende plays at renowned festivals all over the world. A co-production with the Suzhou Culture and Arts Center and Hermark Classical Suzhou in China.
