Over 5000 people were guided to a series of two secret locations (previously vacant spaces) for an indoor light and theatre experience on the Wellington waterfront. Wellington's celebrated light festival producers LUX experimented in partnership with Urban Dream Brokerage in innovating with light sculpture for the public inside interior vacant space.
Weird nature bloomed and oozed in an experimental ecosystem of light. Audiences were invited to be immersed in the collision of art and science fiction that until now "only lived in your imagination".
"The LUX team has always dream't of creating an indoor experience like Glade. When we had the opportunity to pilot such a project, it was our collaboration with Urban Dream Brokerage that turned that dream into reality. The support we received from UDB was integral to the realisation of Glade. Their commitment to the greater Wellington mission of enabling high quality, accessible arts made them a perfect partner for LUX, and it was the sharing in that vision that ensured our path to success."
