Exchange Place, Barangaroo


Barangaroo Delivery Authority presents Vivid Sydney at Barangaroo and Winter Camp, a work by Erth Visual and Physical Inc., Mandylights and Jacob Nash.


When Vivid Sydney lights up the city’s newest food, fashion and lifestyle precinct, Barangaroo becomes a feast for the senses and must-explore destination. Located a short stroll from King Street Wharf and minutes from Wynyard Station, the laneways of Barangaroo bring together contemporary architecture, world-class dining and vibrant cultural experiences.

Each night during the Vivid Sydney 2019, Exchange Place is transformed into a wondrous Winter Camp inspired by the changing seasons.

Meet the glowing giant Marri Dyin (pronounced Mahr-ee Djin), meaning ‘Great Woman’ in Sydney Aboriginal language. One of the largest puppets constructed in Australia, this six-metre tall contemporary spirit reveals the influence and importance of Indigenous Australian women, including Barangaroo after whom the site is named. 

A school of captivating illuminated fish, puppeteered by local Sydney school children, joins Marri Dyin. They will be led by Indigenous Australian choreographer and dancer Albert David.

The artistic collaboration brings together the talents of Erth Visual & Physical Inc., Jacob Nash, Mandylights and James Brown. Combining world-class puppetry mechanics, sound and light, the artwork and performance will be a spectacular showcase of Australian artistic innovation and creativity.
