Description

The cool waters of Dyoondalup Point Walter are calling City of Melville residents and the wider community to embrace the changing seasons and take part in Melville Midwinter, the City’s annual artistic celebration of the midwinter solstice. Inspired by the notion of illuminating the darkness and nurturing new life, this year’s event will encourage the community to pause, stop and begin again, creating space for reflection and the emergence of new inspiration, culminating in an icy swim from jetty to foreshore. As the celebrations unfold, the landmark location will come alive with a series of song, dance, visual art and spoken word performances throughout the evening, with audiences traversing their way through the lantern-lit path beneath the stars. The leading musical line-up will feature nationally renowned Fremantle based musician, David Hyams, along with some of WA’s most talented artists, with the inclusion of new work from poet Nandi Chinna for the evening’s finale. 5.00pm Acknowledgement of Country, hot food and roving performances 6.00pm Performance stations begin on the hill 7.00pm Finale performance on the foreshore 7.30pm Jetty plunge and swim to shore
