An immersive labyrinth of light, air and sound
Fremantle Arts Centre in association with Insite Arts presents: ARBORIALIS Luminarium by Architects of Air.
Get ready to be wowed. Luminarium by Architects of Air is a giant inflatable architectural structure that stretches 45m by 35m, totaling 1,000m2 of glowing maze-like spaces for old and young to explore!
Visiting Perth for the first time is the ‘Aborialis’ luminarium, the latest immersive experience from the UK creative powerhouse Architects of Air, which return to Australia after a 4-year hiatus.
Upon entering, audiences are immersed in radiant and mesmerizing colour which is created from daylight shining through the luminarium’s fabric. The organic yet geometric form of the luminarium provides a labyrinth of twists and turns spanning tunnels and cavernous domes to wander and explore, with each new room creating different colours and mixes of lights, shapes, and patterns.
Inspired by the natural world, Arborialis is dedicated to trees and is designed to echo aspects of being lost in a forest – there are radiant canopies of leaves that stretch overhead, there are vibrant tree trunks rising from the ground beneath. The visual world of Arborialis is enhanced by the natural and spiritual sounds of the Song of Danu created by Irish composer Dr Michael Morris.
Pre-plan your visit: a limited number of tickets are available for pre-purchase online. If the online ticket allocation is exhausted, there will still be door sales onsite every day.
Onsite tickets are available for purchase every day during opening hours. Door sale tickets will be sold as capacity allows; a large queue may be expected.
