BY Bundanon Trust | 01-Dec-2017
This intriguing art event will bring Nowra to life through the eyes of over 80 local makers, artists and school students in the Manse Gardens of St Andrews Presbyterian Church. Planet Nowra is a free event exploring the concept of ‘place’ through contemporary arts practice.
The vision of Theatre Kantanka director Carlos Gomes, who has led a team of cutting edge contemporary artists in the creation of a Nowra-specific collection of artworks, installations and live performances. It’s a unique experience where visitors will travel through the Manse Gardens by entering a series of structures and domes housing the artworks. At dusk, the walls and surfaces around the Manse come to life with projections highlighting the unexpected beauty of the built landscape.
Known for creating a spectacle, Alison Clouston, Boyd, Katia Molino, Kym Vercoe and Sean Bacon have brought to life a program including music, storytelling, projection and movement it that will take place throughout the day and evening.
