KUCHING: Kuching Amphitheater will light up with the Rainforest in the City (RITC) 2019 for 10 days, where immersive installations and music shows will fill the area in July.
As part of the on-going Visit Sarawak Campaign 2019, this event is curated for the tourist and festival goers where they will be exposed to the culture, adventures, nature, food & festivals of Sarawak, augmented with music, lights, and technologies.
Hosted by the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, Culture, Youth and Sports Sarawak in collaboration with the Sarawak Tourism Board, RITC will be launched on 2nd July 2019 by its minister Datuk Haji Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.
The visuals and art elements of this event will consist of 4 main installations; Forest Projection Mapping, LED Tree, Tunnel of Life and LED Light Balls. Musical performances by At Adau will be one of the highlights on launching night.
Serving as the main highlight of this event, Forest Projection Mapping serves to re-imagine nature by using the trees as a canvas to artfully blend visuals of Sarawak’s cultural elements.
RITC also aims to enhance the hype and awareness of the Rainforest Music Festival that will be held on 12-14 July 2019.
