'The Contact Season of Power Plant'

The New Zealand Festival, in partnership with Contact Energy, is delighted to announce that the world famous light and sound experience Power Plant will transform the Wellington Botanic Garden for two weeks from 28 February - 16 March 2014.

The Contact Season of Power Plant is a brilliant collaboration between five artists who have converted public parks around the world into nocturnal magical spaces through innovative use of light and sound.

Power Plant was first shown in the Botanic Gardens in Oxford in 2005, has been a hit in Edinburgh and Hong Kong, and a sell-out success in Sydney. More than a walk in the park, this spectacular array of installations has entranced audiences young and old the world over with its “sudden bursts of firefly radiance” (The Guardian). Electric flowers whirr, light insects buzz and propane-powered pyro-phones belch flames into the sky in an unforgettable feast for the senses.

The vision of five “artistic gardeners” Mark Anderson, Anne Bean, Jony Easterby, Kirsten Reynolds and Ulf Mark Pedersen, the artists respond to the natural environment of every garden they work in – creating installations that reveal the beauty and vitality of what’s already there. In April 2013, the creative team from the UK spent a week in Wellington exploring the Botanic Garden and creating a bespoke route and design for Power Plant.
