Badu Gili: Celestial

Town: Sydney

Address: Bennelong Point, Sydney, 2000, NSW

Community Event

Badu Gili – meaning ‘water light’ in the language of the traditional owners of Bennelong Point, the Gadigal – is a free daily experience that explores First Nations stories in a spectacular six-minute projection on the Opera House’s eastern Bennelong sails.

Watch the sails illuminate with Badu Gili: Celestial, a new projection celebrating the work and stories of two female First Nations artists from Australia and New Zealand, created in collaboration between the Opera House, Biennale of Sydney and the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain.

The lighting of the sails takes place each day at the top of the Monumental Steps from sunset.
