The Light Show, presented by the performing arts ensemble, Sun-Bus-5, is a curated program of four decades of low-budget video art masterpieces, indoor and outdoor projections and structured improvisations. Venues are transformed into a playground of light and sound as Sun-Bus-5 (Andrew Garton, Chip Wardale, Hugh McSpedden, Kate Adam and Steve Law) interact with vastly different locations.
Legendary projection artist Hugh McSpedden introduces his eclectic collection of analogue projectors, demonstrating how he has created psychedelic visuals from the 1960’s to the present.
Utilising Garton’s Drift Theory and an array of instruments including analogue synths, treated guitar, bass, marimba, percussion and assorted devices, Sun-Bus-5 respond to myriad light dramatisations of music.
Part performance, part side-show, part show & tell, The Light Show is a celebration of the history of psychedelic lighting in Australia and its comfortable relationship with the unashamedly avant-garde.
The Light Show premiered at the 2012 Melbourne Fringe with two nights at the St Andrews Hall in rural Victoria, and two sell-out shows at The Sacred Heart Chapel, Abbotsford Convent.
