A laser and musical show will light up the night next week
“Liquid Light” returns, following up on its July 4 premiere.
Vashon’s outdoor light and sound experience, “Liquid Light,” will return at 8 p.m. on Thursday, September 16 at the Open Space for Arts & Community.
The “very Vashon” event, producer David Godsey said, follows the first presentation of the light show, which took place on July 4. This time, he said, it was specially organized to encourage dancing.
“When hundreds of islanders showed up on July 4, we knew we had something special on our hands,” he said. “People were ‘oohing’ and ‘ahhing’ at the lights, and a lot of people were dancing around the edges. So this time we’re doing more to support the dancers in the crowd – more space and lights for a dance area.
Godsey said the show will also be a great experience for more laid-back attendees, with plenty of space to relax on lawn chairs and blankets and take in the show.
Created by combining curated music and pulsating laser-generated images projected onto the Douglas fir grove at Open Space, “Liquid Light” is the creation of Voice of Vashon deejay Jon Schroeder and lighting artist David Marine.
“Part of what we really love about this portable and powerful technology is that it allows us to take our two passions, music and art, and bring them together outdoors in a natural environment. night,” Schroeder said. “The combination of these elements creates a hypnotic and communal experience.”
On September 16, doors open at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space, with music for outings, tours, and early-bird dancers. The full laser show begins at 8:15 p.m. Guests are encouraged to bring food and non-alcoholic beverages to accompany the show. Please leave pets at home, but bring your favorite folding chair, pillows and blankets. Those with lawn chairs will sit further back so people on blankets can see.
Admission is $12 in advance and $15 the day of the show, ages 12 and under are free and no one refuses for lack of funds. Tickets are on sale at openspacevashon.com. Questions can be directed to [email protected]
