- Participatoty Lighing installation
Shadowdance takes ‘dancing in the streets’ to a whole new level. The audience becomes performer as floodlights magnify your multi-coloured silhouette to the size of a building.
The effects get even the most reticent of dancers cutting interesting shapes as their shadows interact with other members of the audience and life suddenly becomes a rainbow coloured trick of the light.
