Fire Gardens

  • Royal Botanic gardens victoria Birdwood Avenue South Yarra, VIC, 3141 Australia (map)

Exhibition Runs 10 - 13th October

3 sessions each night - 7.30pm, 8.30pm & 9.30pm


Stonehenge. The Kremlin. A bridge in Vietnam and a former prison in Morocco. For more than 20 years, French artists Compagnie Carabosse have been putting them all to the torch. Now, these luminary alchemists will transform Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria’s Melbourne Gardens into a dreamspace of mystery and revelation.

Mammoth spheres of leaping flames, sculptures that flicker and dance, fiery urns that cause shadows to play and a soundtrack every bit as brilliant as the garden itself—making your way through this dense and wondrous garden is both a personal journey full of surprises and a shared experience of elemental forces in full effect.

Fire Gardens will light Melbourne up like never before.

This is a promenade event in an outdoor environment, so wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and travel light. No animals, chairs or eskies. No BYO. Food and drink stalls will be available on-site. (1).jpg
