If you have Instagram, you’ve likely seen the Rain Room at Jackalope Pavilion, St Kilda.

Brought to Australia last August, the sell-out seven-month season in 2019 attracted 90,000 visitors and was something of a social media success.

It’s now set to reopen on Saturday 5 December, with tickets on sale now.

For the uninitiated the installation allows patrons to take centre stage as they navigate a 100sqm torrential downpour which responds to your movements and presence, diverting the rain around you.

The exhibition is experienced in small groups and with social distancing in mind, the maximum number of visitors is now capped at 12, down from 18. Visitors are encouraged to explore it solo with a private session delivering the ultimate contactless art experience.

For the season restart, ticket pricing has been reduced and now starts at $19 for youth and $29 for adult, ranging up to $299 for a private showing.
