Leading design and production company for themed attractions, Jora Vision, has created an immersive experience for the Young Rembrandt Studio in Leiden.
The Young Rembrandt Studio opened on May 17. Located at Langebrug 89 in Leiden, the 17th-century dwelling is where the Dutch Master, Rembrandt received his first painting lessons from his mentor, Jacob van Swanenburg. This listed building is a stop on the “In the Footsteps of the Young Rembrandt” walking tour through the city.
The story of young Rembrandt comes to life in a seven minute immersive show, which takes place in the reconstructed studio of Swanenburg. Jora Vision designed, built and directed the attraction.
Marco Ruzza, Creative Director at Jora Vision,says, “The show highlights the Dutch Master’s unique talents, and takes visitors through the journey of creating and mixing paints in 17th-century style, using exotic pigments and minerals. This is explained using video mapping technology. Guests can get a glimpse into the painter’s childhood spent through the streets of his home town Leiden. The experience
immerses guests in the artist’s life and work in a unique way, ensuring that they will see
Rembrandt’s work from a whole new perspective.”
