Well it's that time of the year again folks when we all rug up and venture into the City for the spectacular "Vivid Sydney Light Show".
I would suggest that we meet at Custom's House at 5pm, maybe grab some dinner, ready for the show to begin at 6pm. Parking will be a challenge!
Here's a very shortened version of what's on offer this year.
Nothing is as it seems as one of Sydney’s most stunning colonial buildings, Customs House, turns into glass, mercury, paper, water – and even disappears completely – in a dizzying state of the art projection display.
Large-scale image projection experts The Electric Canvas transform this iconic sandstone architecture with a series of 3D-mapped animation sequences.
Vivid Sydney will include over 40 stunning light art installations from local and international artists in a free outdoor exhibition where children are encouraged to climb on interactive sculptures and aspiring photographers can put their night camera settings to the test.
People of all ages will enjoy this sensory experience, interacting with diverse and colourful sculptures including an enormous sketchpad where you can draw your own light art, a giant crystal spiderweb shimmering in the dark, a social network of friendly fireflies that that react to torch light and a group of rainbow life-size men.
FireDance is an incredible performance of dancing flames choreographed to music, the likes of which has never been seen in Australia before.
Using 40 jets of flame higher than a three-story house, FireDance will explode 5 times a night every night of Vivid Sydney – making Campbells Cove in the Rocks, the world’s biggest campfire.
Choreographed to music using the same technology that controls the Harbour Bridge fireworks every New Year’s Eve, FireDance will feature two different shows, alternating between each other on the eighteen incendiary nights of Vivid Sydney.
