Last year White Night caught us by surprise. This year we’ve been speaking with folks in the know to formulate a plan of attack. It could all go out the window once we’re caught in the revelry but having a plan and breaking with it gives us that lovely renegade feeling. Anyway, here’s the inside scoop.
MOONLIGHT SYNCHRO, Melbourne City Baths
PURPLE RAIN, RMIT Alumni Courtyard
MOLECULAR KALEIDOSCOPE – ‘VIRUS ONE BILLION TIMES’, State Library of Victoria – Latrobe Reading Room
LUCKY DIP, Swanston Street, between Little Bourke and Lonsdale Streets - Particularly Psychic Hairdressers Anonymous and “Uptown” Brown!
VOICES, Melbourne Town Hall
LANEWAY ECLIPSE, Carson Place, Melbourne - Get there to see it at its zenith at 1am.
YOUNG PRAYER, St Michael’s Uniting Church
WONDERLAND, Flinders Street, between Russell and Elizabeth Streets
VLADMASTER VIEWMASTER™ EXPERIENCE and TITLE: SEQUENCE, ACMI
CABINET OF CURIOSITIES, The Forum Theatre
TAXI, Flinders Street Station Taxi Rank - You might need to wait till late morning because only 6 people can experience it at a time.
FRACTURED, Flinders Street Station (under the clocks)
VORTEX, Southbank Pedestrian Bridge - Access from Southbank side.
MIDDEN, Birrarung Marr, Lower Terrace
MONUMENTS, Yarra River, Capital City Trail
CREPUSCULAR BEAM, Alexandra Gardens, Engineers Lawn
ARCADIAN REVERIE, Queen Victoria Gardens
RACHMANINOFF LIVE, Hamer Hall
TATTOOED CITY, National Gallery Victoria façade
So lots to do. Don’t expect to see everything, FOMO is your enemy on White Night as it is in life. Our guiding principle will be to do and see things we couldn’t on other nights of the year.
