COLCHESTER

Colchester Park 

  • Music of the Spheres – Each 90-minute performance starts with dancers and musicians within land-based, transparent spheres and domes moving around the audience – enabling socially-distanced performances and providing a great theatrical spectacle. Musicians perform on flute, violin and accordion, as well as more unusual instruments from around the world such as Tibetan Singing Bowls and a slate xylophone.
    The highlight of the event will see a giant Sphere, the size of a four-storey building, launched onto the Park’s boating lake. Inside, aerial dancer Claire Crook will spin and spiral on silks suspended from the centre. The Sphere performs a ballet on the lake as it moves over the surface of the water controlled by the Eye Music technical team.
