Illuminate Adelaide’s magical light installations will reopen around Adelaide yesterday, after its short closure due to the state-wide lockdown, and have decided to continue shinning all the way into August.
Illuminate Adelaide Co-Founders and Creative Directors, Lee Cumberlidge and Rachael Azzopardi said, “we are thrilled to be able to welcome audiences back to Illuminate Adelaide this week, turning the lights back on for Light Cycles, Light Creatures, City Lights and Van Gogh Alive, all of which brought so much joy before being paused. Although it won’t be the full program we had planned, we are extremely grateful for the opportunity to light up our wonderful city once again.”
Luckily, the centrepiece installation, Light Cycles at Adelaide’s Botanic Gardens, which showcases the immersive work by Canadian multimedia studio, Moment Factory, will be open again until Sunday 8 August. Having created mesmerising light shows for artists like Madonna, Jay-Z, Ed Sheeran and Billie Eilish, this Australian first installation is not one to be missed. Using lights, sound, video and special effects, this show will amplify the voice of the natural world and captivate the audience.
Capturing the captivating characters of the Zoos favourite residents, the enchanting Light Creatures installation at Adelaide Zoo has also recommenced and extended its time until Sunday 8 August.
You will want to grab a ticket to the impressive Van Gogh Alive exhibition, which has extended its season until Sunday 22 August. This world-first display showcases the work of the iconic Vincent Van Gogh through audio-visual technology and includes a variety of Instagram-worthy moments throughout.
