Play the Stars

19:30 — 21:30

It's midnight on the Liverpool docks. It's dark. It's quiet. The stars are out. But something unusual is about to happen. A strange animal scuttles along the riverbank; the waves roar, as if something is about to rise up; and the stars look like they're about to fall.

Play the Stars

In a new interactive digital commission for LightNight, you are invited to help create a 3D story as Tilt Brush artist Rosie Summers live-paints audience suggestions into a magical virtual reality world set at Liverpool’s waterfront. Produced by theatre company leo&hyde the live-streamed performance will feature a live score by Liverpudlian composer Marco Galvani and storytelling by Rebecca Macauley.

About the artists:
