Warm up with The Light in Winter

Experience art, music and performance from dusk with Federation Square’s annual winter program, The Light in Winter.

 

Directed by arts luminary Robyn Archer, The Light in Winter brings together local and international artists to Melbourne for free events, exhibitions, public art and the much-loved Solstice Celebration.

 

Each year the program seeks to enlighten audiences through artistic interpretations of a central theme chosen by Artistic Director, Robyn Archer. This year we turn to ‘Shrines’.

 

See the world premiere of Radiant Lines, an interactive light installation by exciting UK designer Asif Khan, as well as whimsical works by Papermoon Puppet Theatre (Indonesia) and new media art by Melbourne’s Cake Industries.

 

At the heart of The Light in Winter is the dedication from the artists and participants that make up over 20 culturally diverse community groups. Like a laboratory for creative collaboration, The Light in Winter provides artists with a platform to create new works while drawing from the rich traditions and customs of their own cultures.

 

Full program of events will be available in May.

 

Collaborative project by Papermoon and Cake Industries is co-commissioned by City of Melbourne.
