In a place that has no defined use, we find that less is more.

LESS was a part of the 2022 Enlighten Festival and The BOLD Festival. An illuminated outdoor dance and music performance on the evocative architectural public artwork, Less.

Designed by Chilean architects Pezo von Ellrichshausen, the uses of LESS are undefined. It is a place that conjures images of ancient and future civilisations, the sacred and spiritual, the duality of the rigid and organic. Its permeable cage echoes the isolation of this current time. Here in reverent contemplation we uncover our playful imagination.


When: March 4th, 5th, 10th, 11th and 12th 2022 Where: Less Pavilion at Dairy Rd. Fyshwick
