1 – 3 November @ Fremantle Esplanade Park ·
Presented by Studio Roosegarde ·
An Australian premiere in Fremantle, Studio Roosegaarde will present a large-scale light installation illustrating the universal power and poetry of water. ‘WATERLICHT’ is larger-than-life; cascading waves of blue light will soar in the middle of Esplanade Park, simulating a virtual flood and calling attention to rising water levels along Fremantle’s shoreline. The work will embrace the unique physical features of the site while acknowledging its past. A soundscape will accompany the work, including local stories about Fremantle’s waterfront by traditional custodians, prominent civic figures, historians, artists and community members. These stories will live on as an enduring legacy of the work’s appearance in Fremantle, and serve as a stirring call-to-action for a city-wide conversation around clean water initiatives and climate change.
