Topic: IlluminArt (2013)
Greerton Village will be dazzling the night sky in July 2013 with the annual winter IlluminArt festival. This spectacular display of light will showcase the best of fire dance, shadow puppets, lanterns, light sculptures, UV lights and more. A free family event, it promises to be a great evening. From 6pm on Friday the 19th of July the Greerton Village Square will be transformed into a vibrant display of light forms, celebrating the artistic talents in and around the local community, with more art, more fire and more magic than ever before.
The story of the IlluminArt competition begins with an amazing lady called Victoria, a true visionary who has been planning and organising the Greerton Illuminart event for a couple of years. This year a lantern display will be added to this already fabulous winter event, the results of a competition for light art installations.
Highlights of the event will include:
- a shadow puppet show
- fire sculpture
- Fire breathers, Fire jugglers and Fire Poi
- Illuminated face painting
- Lantern display
- U.V. light dance party
- Magical fairy light tunnel
- Tauranga Samba
- Live musical performances from Mauao Performing Arts Centre
- Lantern making workshops 10.30 – 2.30 daily from Monday 15th
- Light art installation competition with $1000 in prizes up for grabs
This project is sponsored by Greerton Village Mainstreet.
