If there’s one thing that will get Sydneysiders out and about despite the cold its Vivid Sydney.
The annual festival of light, music and ideas is back in all its glory after being cancelled last year due to the ongoing pandemic. Amidst its mammoth line-up of events that includes several soul stirring talks, brilliant art installations, exhilarating live performances, plus food and entertainment galore is a massive holi party to look forward to. Set to be displayed on the Hickson Road Wall near the Park Hyatt, the Holi installation is being touted as the biggest interactive projection in the history of the Vivid Sydney festival.
For the uninitiated — Holi, the festival of colours, is a popular Indian festival which marks the victory of good over evil. It is celebrated in many parts of the country and is a beautiful tradition that brings people together in joyful festivities.
The brainchild of Nuna Maya — founder, creative director and producer of the international LUMINA Light Festival in Portugal, this is one Vivid event to look forward to. The Holi installation is an interactive peace of art dedicated to community and the sense of oneness that comes with being together.
Attendees will be mesmerised by the Holi installation which sees 1 million digital particles spread across the arena in a spectacular explosion of colour. The entire venue will be drenched with colour as guests get to partake in the event and express their joy without any physical contact.
And the only thing that makes colour even more beautiful is when its accompanied with music. Which is why the carefully curated installation will also come with its own original soundtrack to set the ambience for the event. Visitors can leave a mark of their own by using interactive special effects.
