Paper-cutting structure unfolds display

POLAND will turn its Expo 2010 pavilion into a disco venue through the fair by inviting visitors to sing and dance at night, the pavilion's operators announced today.

The team with the pavilion hopes to create fun and joy by designing the programme, which will be a good way for visitors to release pressure, said Slawomir Majman, commissioner general of the country at the pavilion's opening ceremony this morning.

When visitors step into the pavilion, they will be greeted by a paper-cutting dragon traveling all the way from Poland. The dragon appearing on a large screen conveys the message of the similarity between two cultures, Majman said.

An eight-minute animated film will take visitors through a journey of Poland's history, and innovative pieces of Poland's industry are on display.

The inner solid walls of the pavilion are functioning as screens, on which scenes of Polish city life are projected.

Wang Xiubao, consultant of the Bureau of Shanghai World Expo Coordination, said the pavilion reflects Poland's innovation and creativity, where visitors will experience the charm of the country and understand the country's presentation on the theme of "smiling."

The 3,000-square metre pavilion, mainly made of wood, gives the impression of a huge paper cutout building, tilted slightly upward from the ground.

During daytime, the exhibition hall will be filled with light filtering through paper-cutting patterns. At night, it will shine with different colors.

Poland is known for its traditional paper-cutting.
