1. Water light, lit night
In ordinary times, if you found yourself wandering along our podiums at twilight, you would have noticed our Eastern Bennelong sails lit up with dancing depictions of First Nations stories.
Known as Badu Gili, or ‘water light’ in the language of the Gadigal people, these projections are designed by a talented roster of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. Their work is seen by tens of thousands of visitors yearly (plus hundreds of thousands online).
In late 2019, Badu Gili became decidedly multidimensional when we started offering monthly live events to accompany the projections, featuring performances, cocktails and spectacular sunsets.
As the summer months stretch out ahead, if you find yourself pining for the magic of Badu Gili, open your laptop and play this special online edition from our Digital Season.
