Boorna again

BOORNA Waanginy: The Trees Speak artwork is returning to Kings Park in February.

It was a big hit at the 2017 Perth Festival and this year huge projectors will hurl images of trees, flowers, birds, wetlands and bushfires onto the avenues of trees, celebrating south Western Australia’s threatened landscape.

The 1.5km tunnel of light takes audiences through the six Noongar seasons: Mukuru, the season of fertility and first rain; Djilba, the second rains, the time of conception; Kambagarang, the wildflower season of new life; Birak, the first summer and the season of youth, warmth and play; Bunuru, the second summer of heat, fire and coming of age; and Djeran, the season of adulthood, knowledge and maturity.

The free event is on February 8-11 from 8pm as part of the Perth Festival.

Last entry is at 10.30pm, but you’ll need about 45 minutes to experience it all.
