Follow the glow of lights from Prahran to Malvern
Since its inception four years ago, the City of Stonnington’s annual Glow Winter Arts Festival has gone from strength to strength. This year, the festival returns on August 10-20 to illuminate Stonnington's streets, parks, gardens and buildings with light installations and projections as the sun goes down.
A highlight of the festival is sure to be Greville Projections (6-10pm, Aug 10-20) – a series of projection pieces dotted across Chapel Street's edgier cousin. Over in Central Park in Malvern, Alice's Garden (6-10pm, Aug 10-20) will see a forest of neon flowers, mushrooms and sprouts blossoming every night of the festival. Then, head to Malvern Gardens for Enchanted (6-10pm, Aug 10-20), where artist James Voller has transformed the space into a series of illuminated homes and buildings.
Performance-wise, Chapel Off Chapel will be hosting physical theatre ensemble Dislocate with their Helpmann-nominated show, If These Walls Could Talk... (Aug 17 & 19) – a blend of circus and slapstick theatre telling the story of six generations living in a single apartment.
And that's not everything. Visit the Glow Winter Arts Festival website for the full line-up of performances and projections, or simply hit up Chapel Street and get exploring.
