On June 29th Tel Aviv celebrated a yearly "White Night" event, during which the most modern Israeli city is taken over by various cultural, art and entertainment happenings.

Although most of the participants are representatives of the local cultural scene, European Union member states also have found their place in this celebration.

For the third year a historic and central Rothschild Boulevard plaza hosts the event „Performance Europa“. Thanks to collaboration between the members states, EU Delegation in Israel and Tel Aviv municipality European creatives get a chance to present their work to the wider Israeli public – Tel Avivians and city‘s guests. This year the organizers wished to see performances trespassing the limits of their genre and video works in the public spaces.

Lithuania was represented by Gluk Media‘s interactive video projection "The Arkanoid". It‘s an interactive installation projected on a building and its visuals were inspired by works of a famous Lithuanian painter Mikalojus Konstantinas Čiurlionis. "The Arkanoid" is a competitive game that allowed for one or more participants to compete with other teams and has drawn in many "White Night‘s" guests.
