SEASON EXTENDED - must close 14 August

Back by popular demand, the runaway hit of Illuminate Adelaide 2021 returns to Adelaide Botanic Garden.

This Australian-first production from celebrated Montreal studio Moment Factory once again transforms the lush greenery of the Adelaide Botanic Garden into an after-dark immersive experience connecting guests to the natural world like never before.

After a sold-out season for its premiere run, Light Cycles’ encore season in 2022 is your chance to revisit or discover anew this world-leading blend of technical innovation and natural splendour right here in the city’s backyard.

From an ode to the setting sun in a tree-lined avenue to a spectacle of story and song in the garden’s Palm House, Moment Factory’s cutting edge use of light, lasers, projection and a moving original soundtrack promises to be as transcendent as ever — with a few new surprises.
