About this event

''Yabarra - Gathering of Light' is an immersive Kaurna storytelling experience involving large-scale light and sound artworks along the Karrawirra Parri (River Torrens). For all 31 nights of the Adelaide Fringe, audiences will be invited to experience free audio and visual artworks that will share Kaurna stories and illuminate the surrounding riverbanks, grasslands and the river itself using cutting edge technology and state of the art illumination. Projectors will turn tree foliage into faces; water screens will create an interactive waterscape with our aquatic life; large-scale inflatable animals that once inhabited the river such as the snake, dingo, quoll, platypus, bilby and echidna will be illuminated sharing their stories and connection to the land; immersive light installations will share knowledge of the six Kaurna seasons; and traditional songs, sounds and narration will fill the air and guide you on an unforgettable journey. For people of all ages and from all walks of life, Yabarra will be a unique and electrifying way to view these Kaurna stories in a new light.'
