Main Info

Experience Art in the Dark! The UK’s largest annual arts and light festival returns on Thursday 13 and Friday 14 October 2022 on the theme of ‘Playful City’, highlighting the fun side of life in Leeds and giving visitors the opportunity to explore and interact with places and spaces in new and exciting ways. Expect large-scale light projections, interactive installations as well as music, dance and street performances.

Millennium Square will host the following events on both nights:

01. LUX
Leeds Civic Hall, Millennium Square // 7pm-10.30pm
LUX is an exciting immersive augmented reality game and art installation that challenges players to apply creative problem-solving skills in response to a dynamic environment, seeing the building come alive with light and energy as they progress.

02. Continuum 
Millennium Square // 6.30pm – 10.30pm
This immersive artwork, presented for the first time in the UK, stands 2.5 metres tall and consists of a 20 metre geometric maze of illuminated and resonating mirrors. When audience members approach the towers the exciters are activated and an enchanting and all-encompassing soundscape is created. 

03. Drop Of Light 
Carriageworks Theatre, Millennium Square // 6.30pm -10.30pm
Just another day in the life of a drop of light: it dances, sways, twirls, flutters, hides, jolts and plays. This magical installation combines displays of fluorescent liquid and ultra-violet laser lights to breathe life into a drop of light, drawing the viewer in through all the senses.

04. Invisible 
Leeds City Museum, Millennium Square // 6.30pm-10.30pm
Daniel Popescu’s in[visible] takes its cue from the 90s blockbuster film series, The Matrix, reinterpreted in a questioning of one’s own self-identity and the realities of the surrounding world. As you enter the space, the very fabric of reality, which is usually perfectly simulated by the mirrors that are supposed to be truthful, is decomposed in a million different fragments distorting and diluting seemingly familiar sights, including the viewers themselves.
