Illuma light show set to dazzle waterfront

Prepare to see Wellington's waterfront transformed with light and colour when the highly anticipated light projection show Illuma kicks off this Friday.

The show, part of the Festival of Carnivale and the REAL New Zealand Festival, is set to be the centrepiece of Wellington's waterfront activities throughout the Rugby World Cup 2011.

Combining spectacular imagery and state-of-the-art technology the free outdoor show will run every night from 7.30-10.30pm until Sunday 9 October. The show will run on a seven-minute loop.

Waterfront buildings such as Te Papa and The Boatshed will be the canvas for this specially commissioned work by Auckland-based Inside Out Productions. The show has been designed by director Mike Mizrahi, in collaboration with lighting and video installation experts from Australia.

Viewers will be treated to a series of optical illusions during the seven-minute show. These will transform the buildings with, for example, images representing each of the countries participating in the Tournament projected across Te Papa.
