White Night Melbourne returns in 2019, but not as you know it... Introducing ‘White Night Reimagined' As winter fades and on the eve of spring, join us for a ‘Reimagined' White Night experience. This year for the first time, over three consecutive nights in three key precincts, Melbourne's inner city parks and gardens will undergo a transformation to host White Night Reimagined. Experience Carlton Gardens, Treasury Gardens and Birrarung Marr like never before, as three unique creative experiences are unveiled. Artists from across the city and across the globe take you on journeys mythological, mysterious and mesmerising. Melbourne's iconic cultural institutions will, once again, come alive with their own special programming and will open for extended hours. In 2019, enticing food and music offerings will complement the event, showcasing some of Victoria's best local produce and talent.

melbourne.vic.gov.au guide to getting startedBirrarung Marr: the Physical Realm A highlight experience in this riverside realm is Globe, by Dutch performance company Close-Act. This mix of music, circus, dance and projections will feature 41 performers on, in and around a 16-metre structure. Acrobatics, visual splendour and illusion are also at the heart of Heliosphere, which has been performed in 64 countries since its debut in 1998. Find out why this aerial dance act by the UK's Dream Engine never gets old. Carlton Gardens: the Spiritual Realm There's plenty that's new and different about this year's event, but some things are too good to change. Yes, the mighty White Knight Messenger is coming back to spread more love and compassion. This five-metre-high futuristic archangel with six-metre-wide wings will be brought to life by eight puppeteers and performers and will be joined by other Blanck Canvas creations. There's their surreal Swan Sisters, and this Melbourne company's largest creation to date, The Guardian. Animated by seven puppeteers, this lion-like creature is 10 metres long and covered with crystalline shards that change colour and glow. Anyone who's into creatures that glow - hello, kids! - will also love an installation that's already been a hit at White Night Bendigo and White Night Geelong. Spirit Creatures gathers lots of giant lanterns in the form of plants and animals, both Australian and mythical, around the Carlton Gardens' lake. The Spiritual Realm hosts an awesome display of aerial artistry too. Loved is an inspiring performance on dramatically lit, nine-metre-high towers, accompanied by an emotive soundtrack. Treasury Gardens: the Sensory Realm Don't miss Sensoria, a massive projection mapped onto the grand Victorian facade of the Department of Education building that explores our five basic senses. It's being conjured by The Electric Canvas, the Australian company behind large-scale and architectural projections for many major events around the world. We're talking Olympics and Sydney Harbour Bridge major. Waterlight Graffiti by French artist and designer Antonin Forneau has already literally made a splash in Austria, New Zealand, the US, Canada and Israel. Now it's Melbourne's turn to brush and spray his wall of LED lights with water. It illuminates when in contact with H2O, and fades as the water evaporates, so have a go with the motto of ‘the wetter the better'. Head along to Cocoon and see how your heartbeat affects its external lights - or literally get into it by crawling inside. You'll be surrounded by the virtual heartbeats of friends, family and strangers. Another Sensory Realm highlight is Cluster, an immersive audio-visual installation by Barcelona studio Playmodes. A stream of data will be transformed into images and sounds in real-time for this exploration of the relationships between space, time and perception. Sounds like something Dr Who would really go for. Source: White Night Reimagined - a guide to getting started Posted 6 August 2019 in Culture, Events, Family melbourne.vic.gov.au
