Winter Camp: Vivid Sydney at Barangaroo

Meet 6m glowing giant Marri Dyin, one of the largest puppets constructed in Australia at Barangaroo for Vivid Sydney.

Each night during the festival, Barangaroo’s Exchange Place is transformed into a wondrous Winter Camp inspired by the changing seasons. Meet the glowing giant Marri Dyin (pronounced Mahr-ee Djin), meaning ‘Great Woman’ in Sydney Aboriginal language. One of the largest puppets constructed in Australia, this six-metre tall contemporary spirit reveals the influence and importance of First Nations women, including Barangaroo after whom the site is named.

From Monday to Wednesday, Marri Dyin sits in still contemplation by the campfire. During Thursday to Sunday evening performances, she invites audiences to join in the practice of hunting and gathering before kneeling down so children can share a magical moment with her. A school of captivating illuminated fish, puppeteered by local Sydney school children, joins Marri Dyin. Creators Erth Visual and Physical Inc, Mandylights and Jacob Nash combine their artistry to honour the fact that we stand on the land of the oldest continually living culture.
