ANMM roof to transform into an underwater wonderland

The Australian National Maritime Museum’s is excited to be counting down to 23 May when its iconic 1,700 square metre roof will transform into an underwater wonderland in Aquatic nights during Vivid Sydney June 2014.

To complement its Whale Season, the Aquatic nights rooftop projection and soundtrack will take inspiration from marine environments. Audiences will experience the majesty of ocean life in all its forms from graceful whales to playful dolphins and mysterious creatures of the deep.

Set to an aquatic-inspired soundtrack the roof will pulse to the ebb and flow of ocean currents. This thought-provoking spectacle demonstrates the diversity of our amazing oceans and how we interact with this incredible eco-system.

Created by The Electric Canvas the Aquatic Nights roof projection will premiere on 23 May 2014, and run nightly from 6pm – 11pm until 9 June 2014 with synced audio across Pyrmont Bridge.

Vivid Sydney goers are also invited to kick back and enjoy a program of free live music and DJs on selected weekend evenings during the festival when its waterside café, Yots, will transform into an aquatic inspired pop up bar serving tapas. The line up includes bands and DJs such as rock-pop four piece The Maze, funk/reggae powerhouse Tommy M and the Mastersounds, one of Australia’s finest singer/songwriters Neil Murray and club DJ sensation I Am Sam.

Aquatic Nights is inspired by the museum’s Whale Season featuring two major international exhibitions. Amazing Whales - Evolution and survival from Paris immerses visitors in the world of whales and highlights the importance of conservation to their future survival and Beautiful whale – life-size photography by Bryant Austin is a remarkable photographic exhibition where visitors come face-to-face with giant underwater images of whales at sea.
