Epson projects Yabarra – Dreaming in Light at the Adelaide Fringe Festival

Yabarra – Dreaming in Light

Epson is participating in the Adelaide Fringe Festival this year with partners including Novatech and Monkeystack, to light up and project Yabarra – Dreaming in Light. This is the festival’s signature installation, a vision of cultural creative producer Karl ‘Winda’ Telfer.

Yabarra – Dreaming in Light is a fabulous and immersive cultural adventure which teaches all who encounter it. It tells the dreaming story of Tjirbruke, an ancestor of the Kaurna people and the creation and country at Tandanya.

On the technical front, Epson has installed a wide range of projectors from the EV-100 LightScene to the flagship EB-L25000UNL laser projector. The setup brings together the creative vision in a culturally immersive experience.

“We are very proud to have partnered with the Adelaide Fringe, Epson and the other project partners to create Yabarra – Dreaming in Light. Working with Epson projectors has meant that we are able to push the boundaries of what is achievable in immersive storytelling. Their precision, response and clarity of colour and fidelity of moving image has produced a world class experience in a challenging indoor space.”

“We’ve always enjoyed what a creative collaboration can bring to a project and believe that using the cutting edge technology of Epson’s projectors significantly enhances the effectiveness of storytelling. Yabarra shows how conventional equipment such as Epson projectors can be used to create unconventional images. The results are quite magical.”

“At Adelaide Fringe we see First Nation’s participation as vital to the arts, I’m so proud of our organisation’s signature project for 2020, Yabarra: Dreaming in Light, which speaks to this core value.”
