This year, Vivid LIVE has commissioned multi-award winning German design collective URBANSCREEN to create a new projected artwork, transforming Sydney Opera House with their reinterpretation of the sails – Vivid LIVE’s most public event.

URBANSCREEN have taken the art of light projection, video mapping and motion graphics to extraordinary heights in their many large scale installations, including commissions from major art galleries, international festivals and opera companies. Recent works showcase their versatile and sensitive engagement with architecture, from the dream-themed 555 Kubik at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the ‘operatic staging’ of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Idomeneo, Rè di Creta at Theatre Bremen, to the celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Museums Quartier in Vienna – highlighting Creative Director Thorsten Bauer’s musical approach to institutions.

The work will explore both the iconic sculptural form of the Opera House but also its place as a home for music, dance and drama, resulting in a work that is both sophisticated and spectacular.
