A Perth Festival commission

Perth Cultural Centre is transformed into a world of colour, light and sound with an array of moving images projected onto the buildings for a 360 degree immersive, walk-through experience. With Projections at City of Lights on continuous loop from 8pm to 11pm, you can drop in anytime to be part of these worlds of imagination.

Bring the family and see Perth Cultural Centre come to life with spectacular projections onto the Art Gallery of WA, Perth Institute of Contemporary Arts, State Library of Western Australia, State Theatre Centre and WA Museum Boola Bardip’s historic Hackett Hall. Wander around and experience short films, photography and animation from different angles, each new sightline unlocking surprising connections. And, at the top of every hour, watch as each building is synchronised in the cinematic experience of Bilya Beneath.

Northbridge is built on what was once a fresh water source for the Whadjuk Noongar people, and Bilya Beneath tells the story of that water and its connection to the waters of the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River).

The idea of the river being a life source is the key inspiration for this short film, shot on location in, on and along the banks of the Swan. Set to new music by Noongar singer songwriter Della-Rae Morrison and Charley Caruso which talks not only of histories but of a new dreaming into the future the film has two components: The River as a Lifeforce, for the people of Western Australia to view it as their own living, bubbling organism; and Humans and Nature, focusing on the landscapes, sunrises and sunsets we all know and love.
