Get ready to immerse yourself in an underground world of vibrant colours and pulsating beats! Vivid Sydney, Sony Music, Mandylights, and Culture Creative have joined forces to create Dark Spectrum – a multi-sensory experience inspired by the rave culture of the ’90s. The event features eight rooms, each representing a different emotion and life experience, brought to life by robotics, visual technology, and an electrifying electronic dance music soundtrack.
Step into the world of ‘Dark Spectrum’ and experience the journey of life through separation, constriction, pressure, and the unseen. Reflect on the unfamiliar and connect with your surroundings in this mesmerizing space. The final room will leave you with a revelation that must be experienced to be understood.
Get ready for mind-blowing visuals like never before! In ‘Construction’, 150 LED pipes will hang from the roof, while ‘Pressure’ will feature 50 archways covered in lights and mirrors. The Interaction room features a sea of hanging string lights and illuminated plants that respond to your movement. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a scene straight out of Berlin!
Vivid Sydney Festival Director, Gill Minervini, says “Dark Spectrum is a perfect fit for this year’s festival theme, exploring the intersection between human emotions, our natural environment, and the urban landscape and relics of Sydney’s industrial past.” You’ll get to explore unknown spaces beneath the city’s busy railway lines and see Sydney in a whole new light!
Dark Spectrum is a world-first experience that will tour the world after its debut in Sydney. So if you’re outside of the Harbour City, keep your fingers crossed that it will come to a city near you soon!
