Time Out says
The spectacular centrepiece to GDIF 2021 promises to recreate the Northern Lights in the night sky
The Northern Lights? Recreated over Greenwich and Woolwich? It’s hard to work out – even from the videos that exist from previous incarnations in other cities – whether Swiss artist Dave Acher’s performance piece ‘Borealis’ will succeed in its stated intent of approximately recreating the Aurora Borealis via technology, or if it’s just going to look like a mid-tier rave laser show. Nonetheless, it’s an extremely cool sounding centrepiece to this year’s Greenwich + Docklands International Festival, and it’s difficult to believe that on a nice night with the appropriate level of refreshment, ‘Borealis’ won’t blow your mind somewhat.
Although ’Borealis’ is free, its 30-minute timeslots are ticketed – book here.
