Go to­wards the light

Guardian Express - - NEWS -

THE state’s largest light and il­lu­mi­na­tion fes­ti­val is just days away, with cre­ative di­rec­tor Drew An­thony be­liev­ing Kalei­do­scope has be­come Perth’s must­see fes­ti­val.

Re­turn­ing for its third con­sec­u­tive year, Kalei­do­scope Fes­ti­val will shine a spot­light on Joon­dalup for four nights, Novem­ber 1-4, fea­tur­ing 89 lo­cal, in­ter­state and in­ter­na­tional vis­ual artists and per­form­ers.

Drew, who has worked on many large-scale events in­clud­ing the Syd­ney Olympics Clos­ing Cer­e­mony, Doha Asian Games, Van­cou­ver Win­ter Olympics and White Night in Mel­bourne and Bal­larat, said he was hon­oured to cu­rate the free fes­ti­val again this year.

“Kalei­do­scope has very quickly taken its place as one of Aus­tralia’s most ex­cit­ing light and il­lu­mi­na­tion fes­ti­vals,” he said.

“It’s been a joy work­ing with th­ese re­ally tal­ented and cre­ative peo­ple to help bring their awe­some ideas to our very big au­di­ence.”

Drew said he had learnt “so much” from his first year and he knew fam­i­lies would “en­joy this year’s fes­ti­val even more than last year”.

He said there were 17 at­trac­tions this year.
