Art meets technology in this magical installation allowing you to experience the magic of the Northern Lights right here in Adelaide. Dan Acher’s BOREALIS had its Southern Hemisphere premiere in Adelaide Fringe 2018. Since then, it has travelled the world and wowed audiences in a dozen countries and makes a much anticipated return this Fringe.

High power laser beams travel through particle clouds to create the illusion of Aurora Borealis; variations in weather conditions, movement, colour, and density mean that the effect is different every night.  Move through the canopy, be transported by a stunning soundscape and marvel at BOREALIS as it flickers among the trees and reflects over the lake at Murlawirrapurka.

BOREALIS is an observational experience featuring an atmospheric soundtrack. Patrons will enter at 15-minute intervals, and can choose how long they spend in the installation space, from 15 minutes to a longer visit.

Entrance to Borealis is via the gate on Bartels Road.

Colada at the Rymill Park Kiosk will be serving crepes, snacks and drinks throughout Borealis sessions.
