A number of larger than life, glowing bunny rabbits have hopped into Bunjil Place Plaza! Artist Amanda Parer has brought her world-renowned installation, Intrude, to the Winter Arts Festival and it’s a truly spectacular sight to behold. The gentle, glowing rabbits of this awe-inspiring light installation take on a sinister undertone when scaled up to such an enormous size. You really must come and experience this leading contemporary artwork in the plaza this June. It really is something else and the kids will absolutely love it!
Tue 25 June, 10am and 1pm
At this show, children will step into a magical world of play where their imaginations will run wild! Presented by Patch Theatre Company, Me and My Shadow is a wonderful exploration of shadows, light, colour, water, music and sound. Children love to play with shadows, and in this show, they’ll get to follow the adventures of a girl who makes friends with hers! This is a performance that will wow children of kindergarten and lower primary school age. Booking are essential. Get your tickets here.
