After a long, dark winter, we’re finally starting to see a glimmer of light for our lives after lockdown, and that glimmer comes in the form of an immersive real-life experience called IMAGINARIA.

Set to run right through to Sunday 31 January, IMAGINARIA will illuminate Docklands with its multi-sensory installation combining light, sound, sculpture and even scent. 

Founded by Melbourne-based creative Nick Ennis, the event will be ticketed with several interactive environments—including a giant inflatable bubble, a futuristic light maze and a ‘cosmic abyss’—for guests to work their way through during the hour-long sessions.

Ennis, who has worked closely with a team of fashion designers, architects, musicians, audio-visual artists and creatives, has used inspiration from global experience trends both locally and abroad.

“Trends in society are often reflections of our deeper needs, desires or values. We wanted to create a play experience that elevated you out of the digital fog and snapped you into the now. A creative reminder to slow down, be still and connect.” Says IMAGINARIA founder, Ennis.

Tickets can be purchased here. And for those wondering, yes, a COVID-safe plan has been put in place for visitors, staff and the venue. 

In the meantime, see out lockdown in style with Australia’s largest virtual dinner party.
