Space Cadets -Festival of Light

Sixty feet high inflatable cones were used as performance space for a specially commissioned dance piece.

Chapmans Yard, North Street Scarborough.

400 people attended this event over two performances, but with many more transient shoppers enjoying the visual spectacle.

The three way collaborations between Create, the Manchester based Spacecadets and the University of Hull was a great success. Four, sixty feet high inflatable cones were used as performance space for a specially commissioned dance piece performed by MA dance students and lecturers.

The structures attracted a great deal of attention during the day and looked fantastic when lit with projections and theatre lights. The evening went very smoothly with crowds being drawn to the area by the second appearance of the festival of the impressive sky tracker searchlight.

The spectacle was so visually appealing that the Scarborough Evening News dedicated a full page to images of the event the next day.
