Illuminate 2030 is a roaming projection performance that explores two very different climate scenarios: climate change addressed and climate change ignored. Animated wildlife creatures, whose skins are alive with imagery, roam through the festival. Side by side, interacting, we see two different future worlds colliding.
On Friday 22nd July these roaming creatures will explore a Future Forest created by LiveWires and Cubbies. Watch as their live video drawings transform into their very own Future Forest created through workshops and live projection by Video Architecture.
