Festival Fleurieu & Illuminart
Yankalilla, South Australia
Illuminart and Festival Fleurieu partnered to make a very special show for Carnival Fleurieu, presented on the night of 13th April to launch the 2019 Festival.
Illuminart collaborated with local artists, school children and the festival to create a bright, bold unique new show called ‘Plenty’.
The production was a brilliant, architectural mapped show that transformed the walls of Yankalilla Agricultural Hall, into an extraordinary animated display that combined three projects into an outstanding, big bright and spectacular addition to the Carnivale.
It featured a dazzling array of stories collected around SA and shared with Yankalilla, in exchange for stories locally made. These included a tapestry of stories collected from locals, that have been illustrated and animated by school children of the region, and were turned into a striking display.
Another component of the show featured a celebration of the Fleurieu and its bountiful produce, not only of the agricultural, but also of the arts. This included an opportunity for local artists and studios seeking to have their visual art writ and lit on the large scale!
A final part of the show was the launch of illuminart’s regional SA odyssey, Port to Port, which will begin at the Yankalilla Hall and then connect regional communities all around SA, before being turned into an interactive digital feature. This means that stories from the Yankalilla region will be toured throughout SA after the premier and launch at Festival Fleurieu.
The combination of these three extraordinary productions showcased onto the Agricultural Hall, offered the community a unique opportunity to see South Australia’s iconic illumination artists at work, in a rich display always said to be better than fireworks, and a great way to experience storytelling on a grand scale.
The amazing projection ‘PLENTY’ to appear for one night only on the Agricultural Hall, has been made possible thanks to support from the Australia Council of the Arts to creative team, illuminart.
