Nocturne – Vivid Sydney

Nocturne – Vivid Sydney

Wander away from the Light Walk on an immersive audio journey through the hidden streets and laneways of The Rocks. Let your ears lead the way in this one-of-a-kind experience, transforming familiar locales into a poetic landscape as you journey towards the night sky for a special star-gazing session.

Created by one step at a time like this, an internationally acclaimed group of Melbourne-based artists who create site-specific experiences, this unique adventure has been commissioned specifically for Vivid Sydney 2023. 

Contemplative and dream-like, NOCTURNE is a theatrical swirl of ideas and feelings about darkness and the unknown. It’s made of late-night whispers and evocative fragments of memories in search of nature lost and found, incorporating First Nations perspectives on land, water and sky Country.This experience is designed for small groups and individuals to wander through The Rocks and Walsh Bay area for an hour, before relaxing and embracing the night sky on picnic rugs.

NOCTURNE is approximately a 90-minute experience depending on journeying pace. A moderate level of fitness is required. More information will be sent out to ticket holders ahead of the event.

Created by one step at time like this in association with Bureau of Works and Richard Jordan Productions.

Featuring the voices and knowledge of Ghillar Michael Anderson, Euahlayi Senior Lawman and Knowledge Holder, Jake Ferguson, Bidjigal-Dharawal, Wailwan, Biripi and Bundjalung man and marine environmental scientist Dr Katherine Dafforn.

This is part of Vivid Ideas’ Immersive Events series. Be transported somewhere new by the Powerhouse Late nights, an NFT party, mindfulness workshops and truly one-of-a-kind experiences.

lonning, lonnin

Cumbrian dialect term for ‘lane’ – but a quite specific lane. Lonnings are usually about half a mile long, low level and often with a farm at the end. Many have specific names known only to the local villagers. Hence, Bluebottle Lonning, Lovers Lonning, Fat Lonning, Thin Lonning, Squeezy Gut Lonning or Dynamite Lonning. In the north-east the spelling is lonnin and seems to refer more to an alley than a country lane. The Scottish equivalent is ‘loan’.
