“ingeniously playful array of electronic stunts, kinetic sculptures and musical sound effects sprang a series of delightful surprises”The Sunday Times
Coming straight to Tasmania from a SELL-OUT run at the Hong Kong Festival in February 2011, Power Plant is like nothing Tasmania has ever seen or heard.
Deep among the historic treasures of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens, as dusk falls, old gramophones spin glittering sounds whilst clicking lights cast vast moving shadows. Whistles rise and fall and flowerbeds are transformed by sparkling whirling machines, dancing to their own tune…
A five-star hit at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the nocturnal world of Power Plant comes to Hobart after sell-out shows in the UK.
“A bewitching garden of the imagination” The Liverpool Echo.
Over thirteen nights, you’re invited into the familiar surroundings of the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens which will be transformed by a kaleidoscope of delightful tableaux, lit by flashing neon, shadowy projections and bursts of fiery radiance. Bring all the family and take a dazzling and enchanting journey through a magical series of sound and light installations in the trees, beds and bushes.
With the Gardens the real star of this show, Power Plant is the not-to-be-missed event of Ten Days 2011.
"Power Plant transforms the lush and dank houses of the Botanical Gardens into a magical and at times thrilling experience." * * * * The Telegraph (UK)
