The Liminal Hour at Vivid Sydney

The Liminal Hour will transform Barangaroo’s Wulugul Walk into a magical bushland that the audience explores every night of the festival led by the beautiful female creature named Marri Dyin - “Great Woman”.

The Liminal Hour at Vivid Sydney

An exciting feast of colour and light in Sydney’s waterfront precinct, the installation will focus on a magnificent puppet, which stands six metres high. Inspired by the cycle of regeneration through fire and water, The Liminal Hour features layers of sound and light that will fill Barangaroo with a lush landscape evocative of the Australian bush.

During the performance, Marri Dyin (pronounced “Muhr-ee Djin”) calls upon the natural forces, transforming peaceful bushland, into a raging bush fire, then a torrential storm – a cycle of regeneration which assures new life and prosperity for future generations. While the storm calms and returns to a peaceful bush state, Marri Dyin sits to take counsel with children and visitors, inviting them to share with her their secrets, hopes and desires for the future. This is a touching moment, as children are asked to share a moment on their own, with the Great Woman.

This six-metre high and visually-spectacular character will be operated by a team of puppeteers, acting as a conduit between Marri Dyin and the audience. The artists will bring the breathtaking puppet to life from 6-9pm each night of the festival, cycling twice through her epic journey of fire, rain and regeneration.
