At the opening ceremony of Spier Light Art, the audience will be invited to join a procession across a multi-sensory, cross-cultural wonderland featuring dancers, stilt walkers and other illuminating enchantments. These performances celebrate the launch of the second edition of Spier Light Art – an array of 21 interspersed light and sound installations 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 Bharatha Natyam dancers – all wearing light-infused costumes. Other performances include a new production by the spectacularly athletic Indoni Dance Company and a production with large puppets by Janni Younge.
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. View our Light Art accommodation package here.
