Warm up with The Light in Winter
Federation Square's annual winter program, The Light in Winter, celebrates art, music, and performance, with participation from over 20 of Melbourne's multicultural communities.
Local and international artists collaborate for the eighth year of celebrations in Melbourne, again under the direction of arts luminary Robyn Archer. Free events, exhibitions, public art, and various rich cultural traditions of the winter solstice celebration will warm up Melbourne at Federation Square from June 1 to 22, 2014.
Acclaimed UK designer Asif Khan will bring the world premiere of the interactive light installation Radiant Lines. If his Olympic debuts (London 2012, and Sochi 2014) were any indication, anticipate greatness, Melbourne. Khan's "MegaFaces" at Sochi was a ground breaking digital "pinhead" board, digitally scanning visitors' faces in a photo booth and displaying them at 3500%, 3 faces at a time, on an 8 metre high 3D display board.
A collaborative puppet theatre project by Papermoon (Indonesia) and Cake Industries (Australia) is supported by City of Melbourne.
In past years, festival highlights have included free workshops and various free public lectures from guest artists and local and international representatives. The full program of events will be available in May.
