Cologne’s events sector steps out of the shadows

The Cologne Convention Bureau has commissioned an inventive new performance intended to promote the city’s events sector.

Artists from the shadow theatre troupe Die Mobiles performed an acrobatic shadowplay at the most recent networking meeting of the Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB), intended to spark curiosity about events in Cologne.

The performance was captured on video and can be viewed below. It was part of the tenth anniversary celebration of the CCB.



Die Mobiles are an award-winning ensemble known for their ‘moving shadows’ show. Their aim with this video was to use dance and narration to present a complex sector in a vivid way that reveals its many different facets.

Cologne’s convention sector is an important one for the city, with 174 event locations and a central location in Europe. There is a strong network of science and business in the region, and Cologne has a broad range of cultural offerings.

The aim of the clip’s creators is to boost the city’s popularity among event organizers and fans of cologne.
