City of Colour

6–22 May

Live theatre is back and ASB Waterfront Theatre lights-up in celebration of City of Colour! Come, see the lights and rejoice in the wonder of live theatre.

The dazzling Leo Villareal artwork, Light Matrix spans 29 metres and is made up of 8,260 LEDs across three floors of the Theatre. 

Villareal describes it as a sculpture to be explored. The public is welcome to come inside, take time with the artwork when the theatre is open. With the glazed façade the artwork is also viewable when the theatre is closed.

For Villareal the ability of an artwork to connect people and draw them together is a vital part of public art.
