Fireworks and The Palm Fountain shows
Don’t miss out on seven spectacular nights from 24 to 30 January as The Pointe’s night skies light up with fireworks at 9 pm to celebrate the Dubai Shopping Festival.
Taking it one step further, the largest fountain in the world is hosting brand new shows from sunset to midnight including ‘Joker and the Thief’ by Wolfmother to celebrate Australia Day on 26 January, and Xi Qi Yang Yang’ by The Wynners on the occasion of Chinese New Year on 30 January.
For a limited time only, The Pointe is featuring two light structures as part of the Dubai Shopping Festival: The Talking Heads and ‘Absorbed by Light’, in partnership with DTCM.
Visitors can enjoy the Talking Heads, created by Viktor Vicsek from Hungary, showcasing two heads having a conversation through the power of light. The spectacular design uses around four thousand LED lamps to show different facial expressions.
Mirroring society, ‘Absorbed by Light’ is the latest addition to The Pointe by British artist Gali May Lucas in collaboration with sculptor Karoline Hinz. Initially displayed in Amsterdam, the installation depicts three silhouettes on a park bench, all taken in by their cell phones.
