Adelaide’s new hub of performance is now open and the photos are electric.

The Lab, the arts area of The Light Cultural Foundation’s venue in Light Square, opened Friday with vibrant LED screen graphics, blindfolded saxophone players, and copious food and drinks.

The photos from opening weekend epitomise the Lab’s goal; With DJs, sheet-covered dancers, harp players in front of colourful visuals, and an engaged crowd in an immersive show or beer garden, the new venue has bridged the gap between art, artist, and audience.

“We’re aiming for collective human experiences and performance intimacy, which is all about connection between the audience and artist,” Lab co-founder Nick Dunstone told Glam.

“I’m most excited about seeing how the artists and audience relate to this entirely new experience,” he said.
