“...Spring’s tumultuous tumescence is indeed a thing of shock and awe. It is hugely entertaining stuff, and provides a fine calling card for 2012 from a company that over the years has grown fantastically in both technical competence and confidence…” - “Lyn Gardner in The Guardian”
Full Circle uses live music, fire, fireworks and special effects to tell a story of change, taking you on a journey through the seasons.
A frozen tree sits in a wintry landscape. The wind howls through its branches, carrying strange sounds. Out of the noise, a tune emerges and four pod-like flowers slowly open to reveal musicians. Live music brings the garden to life…
Spring’s new growth blooms into a colourful summer party, heat builds and the air turns heavy;
Can music resist the storm?
“...a breathtaking journey that ended with slow piano against a snow storm dissolving into a rainbow of cascading swathes of stars, leaving the massive crowd silenced…”
Jan Fairley Songlines Magazine.
