SPARK-Sea of Light – FREE School SessionsPerformances and Workshops brought to you by the SPARK Education Program
Paint a voyage in Light
Embark on a journey of light and imagination in the illuminating interactive installation by Patch Theatre. With a UV torch as your paintbrush, paint and stencil your own voyage and steer ships that leave glowing paths of light in their wake.
As you explore Sea of Light, artworks by Contemporary Aboriginal Visual Artist Elizabeth Close are painted in light across the sea floor. These paintings speak to the connection between land and sea, the earth and waterways and are informed by the diversity of the Australian landscape. They also reflect the deep relationship that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia have with Country. In Australia today, there are over 250 specific Language and Clan Groups, each with their own unique language & cultural practices.
Schools are offered 20-25 minute sessions, with a maximum of 30 students in each session.
Students must be accompanied by teachers at all times.
Sea of Light will be presented on the Horsham Town Hall stage floor. Please enter via Door 1.
Sea of Light brings together magical light and a gentle soundscape to create a unique adventure for everyone.
