Glow Winter Arts Festival 2017

Glow Winter Arts Festival 2017

The winter darkness is spectacularly illuminated during the Glow Winter Arts Festival, across the City of Stonnington, from twilight until after-dark, 10 – 20 August 2017.

Stonnington’s most iconic venues and public spaces will light up like never before with glowing neon installations, architectural projections and larger than life illuminations. Now in its fourth year, the festival will kick-off with a spectacular opening night unveiling new commissioned works for the Festival and works never before seen in Victoria.

See buildings transform before your eyes, discover illuminous butterflies on light posts, find glowing giant flowers and colossal mushrooms, journey through an enchanted village, discover multi-coloured and oversized neon Glow letters in corners, parks and gardens across Stonnington plus much more.

Award-winning Melbourne based, lighting and visual design firm, Mandylights, will transform Central Park with Alice’s Garden. Ginormous flowers will bloom in fading, flickering rainbows, larger than life mushrooms will loom and little sprouts, not yet grown, will cover the landscape with trills of colour running between them.

Dislocate will perform If These Walls Could Talk…?, an intricate mesh of slapstick theatre, astonishing circus skills and powerful story-telling. Projection artists Nick Azidis and Rose Staff are set to work their magic, transforming historic buildings into a whimsical wonderland of light projections with Wonderlight.

Emerging opera company BK Opera strip away the usual pomp and circumstance of this timeless art form to reveal the raw emotion at the heart of their performance <>.

The Centre (for) Projection Art travel south to light up the nooks and crannies of Greville Street while Sowinski/Cullen and Associates’ Untitled will challenge traditional notions of light, allowing us to re-think how we interact with objects in public and private spaces.

James Voller’s Enchanted will spring you into a new imaginative world where you can interact with familiar places under a new light and Carla O’Brien’s work, Neon Glow, will see giant ‘Glow’ letters finding homes around Stonnington.

Advice From a Butterfly by Skunk Control sees a kaleidoscope of butterflies making the light posts of Stonnington their pulpit, whispering advice to passers-by.
