As the Gregorian cycle grinds through its shuddering revolutions, sparks cast into the gloaming, we entice you to explore a dark world that glimmers with life.

(please tuck your friggatriskaidekaphobia snuggly beneath your arm).

In the crevices of a darkened world in the back streets of St Peters glow exotic urban flowers that bloom but once a year and only at night. In the night garden light sculptures, installations and projections burnish the inky darkness, creating a sensory, evocative world, full of salacious suggestion, delicate beauty and an ominous shiver of fear.

In association with the Sydney Fringe Festival, MAYS, INDEX, Wundermite, The Forge, Dirty Kitsch, Arcade Screenprinting, Tabula Rasa and Natural Knots Dreadlocks, Tortuga Studios are proud to present some of Sydney’s most intriguing artists as they tend to their garden beneath the shadows of the night.

Tucked into corners, skirting the line between heresy and transgression, the night garden feeds on folklore and superstition, never more than tonight, Friday 13th…

So follow the glimmer along Mays Lane to visit the night garden that blooms at Tortuga Studios, its tendrils lighting the sultry dusk of Applebee and Hutchinson Streets from sunset on Friday September 13th 2013.
