Lighting Up A World First
A GROUNDBREAKING sound and light show is set to take place in an iconic Australian location in May.
Voyages Indigenous Tourism Australia is behind the fully immersive display to be staged at Ayers Rock Resort. The show will combine ancient Anangu storytelling with state-of-the-art, drone and laser light technology.
Called Wintjiri Wiru – which suggests a ‘beautiful view out to the horizon’ in the local Anangu language – this will be the first time a light, laser, projection and drone experience of this magnitude has been performed on a regular basis anywhere in the world.
The show will bring to life a chapter of the Mala ancestral story which sits between Kaltukatjara (Docker River) and Uluru.
Voyages has consulted and collaborated closely with the Anangu custodians of this chapter of the Mala story to obtain approval to bring Wintjiri Wiru to life.
Visitors will be able to view the show on a sustainably built platform atop a desert dune with panoramic views of both Uluru and Kata Tjuta on the horizon.
“We hope the Wintjiri Wiru show will nourish visitors’ thirst for a deeper spiritual connection with this very special part of Australia,” said Matthew Cameron-Smith, CEO of Voyages.
As custodians of the land, Anangu hold the Mala story from Kaltukatjara to Uluru. To share their story from Kaltukatjara to Uluru, RAMUS designed and produced an artistic platform using drones, light and sound to create an immersive storytelling experience.
