Experience the movement in the night as Canberra After Dark @Enlighten Festival shines a light on LESS, an illuminated outdoor dance and music performance set amidst the stunning architectural sculpture, LESS Pavilion. In a place that has no defined use, we find that less is more.

Experience evocative dance, superb architectural lighting design by Ove Mcleod with sound design by Alex Voorhoeve, live vocals by Liam Budge (vocals), live saxophone by John Mackey and costume design by Aislinn King intertwining through the mesmeric sculpture.

Designed by Chilean architects Pezo von Ellrichshausen, the uses of LESS are undefined – a place that conjures ancient history of grand civilisations, duality of the built and organic and the permeable cage of isolation that we have all been experiencing at this time. It is a place for awakening imagination and for reprieve.
