ACO's ground-breaking collaboration with Bill Henson, revived and refreshed.

ACO’s 2005 collaboration with artist Bill Henson, Luminous, was a ground-breaking, cross-genre musical and visual feast. Celebrating 10 years since their last performance of Luminous, they’re bringing it back, revived and refreshed, with indie Israeli-Australian singer-songwriter Lior.

Henson’s haunting, dramatic photography remains the visual focus. His night-time urban landscapes and moody explorations of sensuality – twilight zones between day and night, male and female, youth and adulthood, urban and rural settings – form the background to a meditative soundscape.

This revival features new imagery and music spanning Britten and Janáček to R.E.M., and the centrepiece is Pēteris Vasks’ pensive violin concerto, Distant Light. Nostalgic, melancholic, at times manic and beautifully evocative, Luminous is an arresting, multi-sensory journey.
