Light Night at The Tetley
Thursday 4 and Friday 5 October, 6–11pm
Light Night 2018 will take over the whole of The Tetley building and there’s something for everyone to get involved in. What we have planned:
– Drawing on voices past and present, Ultiverse immerses you in waves of light and sound. Step into an abstract world where meaning is derived from the many. Ultiverse is an immersive installation, created by artist Akeelah Bertram, that responds to bodies and movement with a collective experience. On Friday there will also be scheduled performances on the hour from 6–9pm.
– Create and save your own silhouette scenes and portraits, with photographer Simon Warner. Cut out your own shapes, or use our props to pose, laugh, or tell your own story on the screen. We will take photos of your creations to upload for a memento of your Light Night experience.
Use our current exhibition, Semiramis by Tai Shani, as inspiration for your shadow tableaux, where you will encounter twelve characters represented through sound, video, sculpture and virtual reality.
– The gallery is open from 10am-11pm during Light Night. FREE entry!
