At the opening ceremony of Spier Light Art on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 December 2019, these performances will celebrate the launch of the second edition of Spier Light Art – an astonishing array of 21 light and sound installations scattered across the historic Spier estate that were created by some of South Africa’s leading artists and designers.
Choreographer Jay Pather’s performance piece, From Before, will feature 22 Shembe, classical ballet and Bhartatha Natyam dancers – all wearing light-infused costumes. Other performances include a new production by the spectacularly athletic Indoni Dance Company.
The opening ceremony costs R200 per adult (includes a complimentary glass of wine) and R75 per child under 12. The performance starts at 18:00 but arrive early and enjoy a picnic for R650 per couple (includes two adult entry tickets and a bottle of Signature Spier wine). Tickets are sold through Webtickets.
From 8 December 2019 to 19 January 2020, Spier Light Art will be freely accessible to the public. Visitors will be able to explore the 21 light art installations which go on at dusk, at their own leisurely pace.
