We are leaders in the field of outdoor performance and large-scale spectacle, renowned for our ambitious experimentation with performance environments. We have created work for sites, for celebrations, for festivals and for ceremonies. Commissions so far have featured pyrotechnics, giant sandcastles, hot air balloons, huge fairy-tale ballgowns and a life-size ocean liner. Our Artistic Director, Kevin Finnan was Choreographer and Movement Director of the Opening Ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.

Our largest event to date, The Voyage, launched the London 2012 Festival in the West Midlands in June 2012 in Birmingham City Centre, attracting more than 15,000 people across three nights, and included dancers, aerialists, a large gospel choir, a brass band and more than 140 community performers.

We are now developing Watermusic, which promises to be even bigger, and will be a stunning outdoor spectacle animating the harbour in Randers, Denmark for the Aarhus European Capital of Culture celebrations in September 2017.
