This year, the Illuminares Lantern Festival made its triumphant return to Trout Lake park. While head alchemist Ari Lazer served as Artistic Producer for the whole festival, an amazing team of Traveling Alchemist Friends – including Jaime Perrelet, Samantha Hope, Lana Royce and Tom Kaczmarski, amongst others – helped set up our most ambitious creation yet. Set up inside a 40′ pyramid, built in the proportions of Great Pyramid at Giza, the space was home to sacred song and performance through the night. Including an amazing looped violin set from Hannah Epperson, beautiful Kirtan performances from a wide range of artists, and magical working through the evening.
Here are some of our favourite pictures from the event:
