For all LUMINOUSnight enquiries, please contact the Program Coordinator, Ian Lilburne:

LUMINOUSnight is a one night spectacular of light and art and The University of Western Australia’s 100th birthday gift to the people of Western Australia.

From 7pm until midnight on Friday 8 February 2013, it will be transformed into a walk-through gallery and performance space, hosting a continous program of performances, displays and installations - a delight of light, art and history.

The LUMINOUSnight Theatre program combines traditional theatre on a stage with travelling street theatre performances.
