Over four magical nights the city’s Botanic Garden, already a charmed space once the sun has set, will become a dreamspace of mystery and revelation fashioned from thousands of individual flames.

Compagnie Carabosse paint with the palette of fire – its colour, warmth, sound and scent; the stuff of our dreams and rituals for millennia.

Their luminary alchemists create site-specific sculptured landscapes from nearly 7000 handcrafted giant candles. Strolling through them is a feast for the senses: fire sculptures that flicker and dance with 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.

Come and wander the Adelaide Botanic Garden in the firelight this March.
